Acquired over the span of decades by a husband and wife team -- both passionate collectors -- the collection comes to public display for the first time ever. The show also represents the first major Rookwood pottery exhibit (outside of the museum) to be held in Cincinnati in decades.
The exhibit will feature:
*More than 20 signature pieces, many of them some of the finest known examples, spanning from the earliest years of Rookwood Pottery in the 1880's through the 1950's.
*Premier examples of each glaze line ever made famous by Rookwood, decorated by Rookwood's most notable artists. Included are examples of standards glaze, iris, black iris, painted mat, french red, aerial blue, sea green, vellum and more. Artists represented include Grace Young, Sarah Sax, E.T. Hurley, Harriet Wilcox, Albert Valentien, just to name a few.
*A selection of Rookwood pieces from the collection made available for purchase via the website or at the exhibit. Many fine examples for enthusiasts to begin or add to their collection. (Catalog of for-sale pieces is forthcoming)
