1905 Rookwood Pottery Chamber Candlestick
Rookwood 1905

This is a finger hold chamber candlestick by Rookwood Pottery of Cincinnati , Ohio. It is a relatively early example, having the impressed date from 1905, “V.” That is, it is done in the fifth year of the 20th Century. That makes it 102 years old and a fairly early piece of Rookwood Pottery. (You can count the flames on the mark to see that they started using it in 1886). As you can see from the picture, it is done in a matte glaze in shades of pink and green. You should also see that it is a thick glaze and drips over the embossed design of the piece. It is in excellent condition. There are no chips, cracks or repairs.
