    Our local GW had this sitting on the counter instead of in the case. I looked at it and saw 50 big ones on the bottom and put it back. It also had 5 chips in it so I left it behind. Once I got home my curiosity got the best of me and I went online to "Greystone's" Roseville Guide and looked it up. I thought it might be a fake as well because I didn't recognize the pattern, but it was legit. The pattern called "Teasel" was there but in a peach color. Retail on this vase was $200 !! Auction was $95 to $137 so I figured $50 wasn't so bad even with the chips and blue may be harder to find but I'm not sure. A closer look at each chip shows at least 3 of those are glaze misses in the base. The nick in the rim and the large one in the base are probably Goodwill's fault. A bit pricey but this makes piece number four in my collection. -Mike-

    "Teasel" from Wikipedia :
    Teasel is a plant in the genus Dipsacus. These plants have a prickly stem and leaves. It's flowers are purple, dark pink, or lavender and grow directly on the end of the stem. After flowering, the head of the plant dries out and holds small seeds. These seeds are important food in the winter for birds, especially the European Goldfinch. Teasels are grown in gardens and nature reserves to attract these goldfinches. In the United States, teasel is an invasive species. It is not native to the continent and takes over the land of native plant species.

    From "Just Art Pottery"

    Roseville Teasel
    Teasel is an Art Deco pattern that was introduced by Roseville Pottery in 1938. Standard colors are green, blue and peach. This line is moderately priced and considered to be a good investment for beginning collectors. Teasel is marked with the die-impressed Roseville script mark and shape number. There are 18 Teasel designs, including vases, bowls, baskets, a jardinière, and a candlestick.

      So pretty! I would've freaked at the price, I'm such a cheapy

      Thanks Amber and Eye.... Yes it was a bit of a budget buster but I would have regretted passing on it more. Roseville is a scare commodity in my neck of the woods.

      Eye, the joy of owning this will last outlast the pain suffered at the cash register. I used to work part time (just for fun) for a high end antiques dealer. She loved to say "It only hurts for a few minutes"

      Not even that long, once I make up my mind. Not having a smart phone to look it up on the spot as I see so many do, running home gives me a chance to think it through. If it's still there when I get back so be it. I never sell things so perfect condition is not so important to me as much as that I love it. Roseville takes a 50% hit in the value department even with factory flaws compared to other art pottery, but I think it still has a comfortable profit margin if I were to sell it.
