Newcomb Vase Decorated with Moss Laden Trees

A Newcomb style scenic vase from the early twentieth century, which was potted by Joseph Meyers, who was with the pottery program from 1896-1927, and decorated with the recognizable highly carved moss laden trees motif in glazes of blue and green. The base is stamped with marks that include an "N" inside of a "C" to indicate the school, along with the ciphers of the potter and craftsman who both created the piece. Measures: 8 ¼ x 4 ¾ in.

In 1895 Newcomb Pottery was established under the direction of Ellsworth Woodward, operating in conjunction with advanced art courses offered by Newcomb College. Woodward brought in recognized artists Mary G. Sheerer as co-director and Joseph Meyer as potter.
