I always look forward to my sisters monthly visits from New Jersey. Along with fresh inventory for our booth from the auctions she attends she always surprises me with gifts. Knowing my love for Roseville all to well, last months trip scored me three Donatello pieces. I believe since it is fairly early in their production the Donatello pieces never seem to be marked. The large pedestal ( #575 ) is missing it's jardinere but is in perfect shape. I actually have two other pedestals in different patterns. Finding matches will be tough because of the many shapes, sizes and color combos in these jardineres. The 8" hanging basket (#327-8) is considered "rare" along with a little lidded powder box...which I used to have..but not anymore darn it. I bought that back in high school and never knew what it was. I think it was broken or lost in a move. So sad now that I finally know. The basket would have originally hung from leather laces to protect against chipping. Someone must have used s-hooks and chain because it does have a small chip around one of the three holes on the inside. Finally an 8" console bowl which I've had a hard time putting a production number on. It's in very nice condition with no damage. Just some fine crazing. What's odd is that a fellow vendor brought in his Mom's Donatello umbrella stand. I was a bit envious. It sure is a beauty and with a price to match. Then bam !! Sis shows up with all these. I'm not worthy !...lol. -Mike-

    Thanks Ken...this is a line that belongs to their "production ware" meaning they made a lot of it. Although it isn't marked Roseville which may be why it gets mistaken for something else much like the powder box I had all those years ago. Just didn't know what I had. :)
