Rookwood

 

Sold


For sale is a very set of art pottery bookends The Rookwood Pottery Company of Cincinnati, Ohio. The pattern is Rooks and it is done in the ever popular deep blue glaze. These bookends has some size to them as they each stand approximately 5 1/4" tall, 5 1/2" wide and 3 3/8" deep.

The bookends depict a Rook or Raven with its back against foliage with berries hanging from the branches. The glaze is a deep semi matte blue and the detail is wonderful. You can see great detail in the feet attached to the platform it stands on as well as the foliage, berries and leaves in the background. The back of each is flat as to sit against and hold back books. These bookends are quite heavy as each one weighs in at about 3 lbs each.

These bookends are considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The beak on the Rooks is perfect and have never been repaired. Each Bookend is signed on the underside bottom with Rookwood's impressed reverse "RP" sunburst logo along with the Roman numerals "XXX" for the year of manufacture, 1930 and form number 2275. There is also the 50th anniversary fan mark just below the form number. The bookends are also artist signed by William P. McDonald as his cipher is on the back right side in the middle of each bookend. One signature is obscured by the glaze and the other can clearly be seen. These bookends have always traveled together as a set and not a marriage as is often seen online. These are an outstanding example of both the form and glaze. I'm quite sure the buyer will be very pleased with their purchase.
