Item Details
Description
Rookwood Pottery Vase by Frederick Rothenbusch (1876-1937) dated 1905. Signed, numbered, and dated on base. A beautiful vellum glazed ceramic vase decorated with white roses on a pale azure blue crackleware body. Marked on the base with the Rookwood logo (a back-to-back "R" and "P" surrounded by flames), a back-to-back "FR" Frederick Rothenbusch artist's mark, "V" for 1905, and identifying shape number "935 D". Rothenbusch's delicate aesthetic with it whispery soft matte hues and almost foggy imagery epitomized tenets of the Arts and Crafts Movement.

The Rookwood Pottery Company was founded in 1880 by the artist Maria Longworth-Nichols who created a world-renowned ceramic studio in Cincinnati, Ohio that attracted reputable artists and ceramicists. Frederick Daniel Henry Rothenbusch was born in Cincinnati and attended the Cincinnati Art Academy. Rothenbusch decorated pottery at Rookwood Pottery from 1896 through 1931 working in vellum glaze, oftentimes decorating with flowers and landscapes.
