A pottery vase of elongated bell shape wheel-thrown by an anonymous Rookwood potter and painted by Edward T. Hurley with underglaze slips in a continuous landscape of trees against a late sunset reflected in a still lake or stream rendered in charcoal grey, pale peach, and sage green. The whole is covered with a transparent matt glaze.
Mold-made squat vase with double-ogee body and two ribbon handles, the whole covered with a pinkish-purple iridescent glaze of flowers (possibly nasturtiums) and leaves on a polka dot background with a deep wine color inside. The vase was designed and decorated by Jacques Sicard while working for the Weller Pottery Company in Zanesville, Ohio.
This vase of elongated egg shape with four prominent V-shaped buttress feet displays the characteristics advocated by William Day Gates (1852-1935), founder and president of American Terra Cotta and Ceramic Company (c. 1886-1927). The art line called Teco echoes the company's long-time experience with architectural terra cotta. Sculptor Fernand Moreau modeled both architectural terra cotta and Teco art pottery.
The elongated ovoid vase of buff-colored earthenware is covered with a continuous and mesmerizing scene of Spanish moss covered live oak (Quercus virginiana) trees executed by Anne Frances Simpson (1880-1930) in low relief and delineated with typical Newcomb Pottery medium blue and green glazes against a pale blue background through which the buff body shows in part. The whole is covered with a transparent matt glaze.
A tall earthenware mold-made vase bulging slightly near the vase opening where the head and arms of a languid female figure with long flowing hair emerges and drapes and swirls around the vase; covered overall in maroon glaze with medium blue accents on the raised areas blending into the base glaze.
