With a neck like Audrey Hepburn...this hi-glaze minty blue vase comes from the most venerable American pottery company, the Ohio based Rookwood, est. 1880. This piece dates from 1940, just before the company filed bankruptcy due to The Great Depression. In 1941 the company was saved by Walter Schott allowing Rookwood to stay in business and its artists and employees to keep making beautiful American icons such as this.
