I love vintage pottery, especially the brands produced in Ohio. Roseville, Weller and Hull are some of my favorites. This pair of Vintage, Yellow vases were a gift from my parents and I've had them for at least twenty years.
The vases were known as Cornucopias. I've always wondered just exactly how they arranged flowers in them because of the angle of the throat. I really should experiment and see for myself.
This pattern is known as Bittersweet. Maybe I'll see if I can find some branches of real Bittersweet and arrange them in the vases and incorporate them into my Fall decorating! Doing a little research, I discovered the Bittersweet pattern was also manufactured in a pretty Minty Green and Rose, which was actually a combination of blue and pink.
Here is a shot of the bottom of the vase with the Roseville mark and serial number. I'm guessing the black marks identified the craftsman who actually painted the vases.
I also wanted to share these really cool arrangements I spotted yesterday in a gift shop.
I think these would be so easy to make! They are just bundles of sticks wrapped in ribbon and adorned with little pinecones, leaves and flowers. They were probably about 2-1/2' to 3' tall and had a hefty price of $65!
