Elegant Weil vase featuring an Asian-inspired scene with trees that are reminiscient of cherry blossoms. The vase is handpainted in grays, blues and pinks, as are many items from this time period. It probably dates to the 1940s, and we’ve seen a number of similar items with this pattern. More information is available on this California pottery is available on the Potteries of California blog.
One interesting feature of the vase is the raised relief pink treetops which are created using bits of clay or rock. Weil wasn’t necessarily known for this type of work – a majority of the pieces found by them are bamboo pattern dinnerware and Dutch-style figurine flower holders, which were popular in the 1940s.
Vase measures about 7 1/2″ tall and 3 1/2″ wide at the mouth. Marked on the bottom with the standard Weil donkey stamp. In excellent condition with no cracks, breaks or chips. The vase exhibits some crazing (crackling underneath the glaze due to temperature changes), but it’s often unavoidable with ceramic glazed items with this kind of age.
