Rare Roseville Pottery Pair of Blue Freesia Candlestick Holders 1160-2"
Description: Pair of most beautiful, very uncommon, and rare blue colored art pottery candlestick holders by the Roseville Pottery Company. This small size set is in the Freesia pattern. It was made in the mid to late 1940s. Both pieces came out of a collection in Southern New Jersey and are marked on the bottom in blackk with their numbers within the collection "CCC33 and CCC34" in black ink. Please carefully view photos as they are part and parcel of our description.
Date: Mid to late 1940's.
Origin: Roseville, Ohio
Size: Base measures ~3 5/8" in diameter, ~2 1/8" high, ~3 7/8" at its widest including both handles. Both pieces together weigh about 13 ounces.
Maker: Roseville Pottery Company
Marks: In relief on the bottom "Roseville, U. S. A. 1160-2".
Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a truly nice set which is very difficult to come by. The colors are rich, fresh and vivid and would display very well. Two nice pieces of art pottery, which would make a nice addition to your collection of Roseville.
Condition: Both pieces are in excellent condition. The pieces have no chips, cracks, hairlines, repairs, or crazing to the glaze. There is a white spot within the candle opening in the dark blue holder which is not a chip, but rather a spot where the coloring did not flow (see the last photo). The only true issue we notice is the fact that the two pieces are not exactly the same shade of blue, one is darker blue than the other. This is the reason we are selling the set at less than 50%25 of its true value. Please see photos to appreciate the beauty, quality and condition of these beautiful pieces.
