This Weller 'Alpha' bowl stands 3.5" high by 6.5" in diameter. Weller did not have a line called 'Alpha', but this name was coined by Ann Gilbert McDonald in her 'All About Weller' book. She notes that this creamware line may have originated with the Zanesville Art Pottery, which was acquired by Sam Weller in 1920 from David Schmid, becoming Weller Plant III. She said Weller acquired the molds, and much of the work force. This line has some great forms, most are reticulated at the rim, and have a nice sort of Arts & Crafts styling, with geometric lines and shapes, some with women's faces, or a Lion, others just simple line motifs, like this one. This bowl has an awesome form, with buttresses, five in all, holding up the center bowl. It is glazed in Weller's signature creamware colors, with hand-painted lines/shapes, in a great Arts & Crafts style. This bowl is unmarked, but guaranteed to be vintage Weller, c1920. It is in very good condition, with a good restoration to some edge nicks/chips at the base and rim edges. It has generalized crazing and the usuual glaze nuances found on Weller pots from this period.
