Rookwood Mahogany vase (Standard glaze over red clay) showing two cranes in flight over tall reeds. Dated 1897, the vase is marked with the company logo, which indicates the date, a triangle esoteric mark and shape number 614 F. Undoubtedly artist signed but glaze obscures much of the bottom. Height 5 7/8 inches. Fine overall crazing giving the background a pleasant alligatored appearance. There is a tiny glaze nick at the base and another on the shoulder.
