There starts a deep burgundy glaze that the artist gradually thinned to wash down upon the roses nearest the top, giving them an air of mystery. By the foot it has all changed to pale green, but the roses and leaves are found there, too. Kovels says Ceramic Art Company of Trenton, New Jersey, was established in 1889 by Jonathan Coxon and Walter Lenox and was an early producer of American Belleek porcelain. I was told there was an old sticker covering the CAC mark that said 1903.But imagine my surprise when I turned over the vase to look at the mark and a piece of folded paper hit my hand. It has the names of: Mrs. Perhaps they all gifted the vase to the original owner. I will include the paper, of course.
The condition has to be called excellent as there are no chips, cracks, or loss to the gold. I will always point out minor flaws, since this is a major investment.
Two are original to the vasea dip and then lump in the clay (1/8), and a mark or scrape, both painted over by the artist. The others are some small scratches on a pink rose. I have shown ALL so that you may know how minor they are compared to the glory of the vase. Check out other items from my personal collection of American Hand Painted Porcelain offered this week.
