Art pottery vase
Decorated by Susan S. Frackelton, 1893
Stoneware with salt glaze
Stoneware vase is ovoid-shaped with a flared rim. It is gray with a salt-glaze. The lower body, top of the neck, and upper interior are glazed dark brown. The rim has a band of incised hatching. The neck has incised leaves and vines, a band of hatching, two bands of intersecting circles, and another band of hatching. The upper body has small stamped quatrefoils and applied flowers, festoons, and floral s-shaped motifs. The lower body has a band of hatching, incised foliate scrolls, and long incised lines near the base. A maker's mark, "SF", and date, "1893", are incised on the underside.
Due to the vase's design, motifs and date, it may have been made for the World's Columbian Expostion, Chicago, 1893. Designs are identical to 1958.1318,a and 1958.1319. Donated in 1958 by Frackelton's daughter, Gladys F. Seely.
