This Rookwood Standard Glaze vase stands 6.5" high by 3.5" in diameter, 1.5" at the rim. It has a shapely and classic form, a hand-thrown form, according to the Rookwood references. William Watts Taylor designed this form shape 657D, which was thrown, unlike shape 657C, which was cast. It was decorated by Miss Clara Christina Lindeman, whose tenure at Rookwood was 1898-1907. She decorated this vessel with blue and red berries and leaves in exacting precision. The glaze colors are gorgeous in shaded deep chocolate brown over a honey golden amber and complementary colors in the decoration. This beauty is well marked and dated with 12 flames for 1898, along with its shape number 657, designation 'D'. Lindeman's initials/cipher are noted on the base, along with the Rookwood logo. This beautiful vessel is in original factory condition, with a couple of minute surface scratches. The shadows in the photos are from camera glare, the glaze finish is very uniform.  This hand-thrown vase makes a beautiful presentation!
