Vellum glaze scenic vase, the work of Alice Caven in 1917. Atypical for Ms. Caven, this scenic is done in a lighter color palette with medium and light green fields leading to purple and blue mountains. There is a single large tree in the foreground with big billowy white clouds against a blue and purple sky. Marks include the Rookwood logo, date, shape 901 D, an impressed V for Vellum and Alice's incised initials. The bottom also contains a wheel ground X due to a few short firing separations in the body. There is fine overall crazing. Height is 8 inches. We are very fond of Ms. Caven's work and wish there had been more of it.
