Grueby Erickson Leaf Vase
Please refer to our stock # 1048 when inquiring.
Grueby vase by Ruth Erickson with tooled and applied leaves, covered in an fine leather-like green glaze. The vase measures 7" tall and is 4" wide and is in excellent original condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. As shown the vase is signed with Ericksons RE cipher, dated 1908, and has the circular Grueby Pottery stamp mark. This is an extraordinary piece with its early dating and signed by Grueby's top decorator as well as being a mint piece. It is not the large size of some Grueby vases that dictate value, but the artistry in pieces like this with their thick hand applied leaves, expert glaze application, and perfect firing.
