    No apparent marks. Glaze looks like Burley Winter to me, but I am not familiar with this shape. Would appreciate any help identifying this pottery vessel.

      Could you add a pic of the base?
    2. twentiethc, 6 months ago
      Double-hecked ... looked closely, definitely no marks. The pic I added shows the base
    3. twentiethc, 6 months ago
      Another possibility... could it be Roseville Crystalis? I'm still not familiar with the shape, but the glaze and style remind me of Roseville Crystalis too.

      Went through the Swingle/Stoin text, google image searched and then looked at hundreds of pics from a standard search - but no match for the form.

      Roseville Crystalis is an interesting suggestion. Again, no match for the shape, but I did find the linked example with a somewhat similar glaze.

      not much help but the closest I'm finding for the form as buttressed orb vase is Teco:

      and the McCoy tulip ball vase is similar

      wow! what a beautiful form! i'd bet on Burley Winter, although it's the nicest form and glaze i've ever seen of their pieces. it does seem more the quality of a Roseville piece or Weller?

      here's a similar one by Fulper [that company is full of surprises!].
