For sale is an adorable piece of art pottery made by the Weller Pottery Company of Zanesville, Ohio. The pattern is the ever popular "Coppertone" and it is considered a figural vase or vessel. The piece measures approximately 4" tall and is 4 1/4" in length. It measures 3 1/2" deep.

A favorite among the Coppertone collectors, the piece depicts a frog clinging to a water lily or Lotus blossom while sitting on a lily pad. The detail on this frog makes him look like he could jump any minute! The frog has a moss green background with tan/copper mottling through out. His eyes and mouth have careful detailing to complete this handsome fellow. The lily pad background is a wonderful deep moss green with much darker copper mottles throughout.

The vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, chips, nicks or dings. There is crazing on the cream colored lily pad and underside of the Frog. This is common with this cream glaze on this particular form. It does not take away from its value. In fact, I actually think it enhances the realism in the Frog. The piece is signed with the "Weller Pottery" incised script signature mark. There is also the numbers 12 and 15 written in green glaze. These are most likely the finishers marks.

I have had over 100 Coppertone pieces in my 43+ years as a dealer and collector. I have had the finishing number 12 on about 99% of these. This tells me that this finisher worked for many years at Weller and processed a great deal of the Coppertone line.

This vase was made Circa 1926-1935.
