Roseville wall pockets are among the most popular and valuable of its many shapes. The Earlam pattern was produced in 1930.
This particular wall pocket is not often seen, especially in such great condition. This mold is crisp and the colors are muted. It is nicely textured and is finished with a satin glaze. The piece has a two toned design; a darker brown bottom and one side fade across to a lighter tan at the top and the other side. It has a slightly incised ridge around the top rim, several thin bands across its middle, and a few wider ridges on the bottom one-third.
The wall pocket has no cracks, scratches, paint loss, or repairs and is in near mint condition. The top tip above the hanging hole and the item's bottom are intact. There is a minute pinhead-sized dark spot underneath the glaze on the front between the middle ridges. There is a tiny (about 1/8) chip to the back left edge of the hanging hole. Because of its size and position, it would not interfere with safe hanging of the vessel, nor can it be seen from the front.For the sake of accuracy, the back has a few small stray marks. The wall pocket has fine crazing which is barely visible on the front, a bit more so on the back, and moderately dark on the inside. It in no way detracts from the attractiveness of the piece. The item appears to have never been used as a planter; it is very clean inside and outside. Please excuse any shiny white spots which are due to camera glare. The wall pocket's back is unmarked. Its dimensions are 6-1/2" h x 6-1/4" w x 3-3/4 d. It displays beautifully and is a wonderful example of its kind.
What a perfect gift for someone special or just for yourself! This wall pocket would make a fine addition to any collection. Thanks so much for looking. I welcome you to check out my other listings.
