ROOKWOOD Trial porcelain plate depicting the twelve apostles under sheer ivory glaze. Flame mark/K8. 12 1/2" dia.
"Among our earliest acquisitions were two porcelain plates produced by the Rookwood Pottery, which we purchased from Bob Sears in 1971. Bob had captured the private collection of John D. Wareham, a Rookwood artist who had served as foreman and manager, and thus was able to keep some of the experimental work which interested him... The unique Apostles plate is from this collection, and could be one of his own trials."
