Looks Like Snow - III


Roseville Art Nouveau Two-Handled Urn with "Whiplash" Handles and Satin White Glazing (LEO Design)


Let's wrap-up our parade of white, snow-inspired vases with this handsome urn by Roseville, circa 1930.  

Classical ceramics—made in Greece, before the time of Christ—have provided inspiration to later potters for thousands of years.  Shown above, a Classical Greek-form urn, adapted to the early Twentieth Century with Art Nouveau-inspired "whiplash" handles.  When an ancient form is updated with a (then) modern accent, something new and interesting is created.  When glazed in a clean, satin white finish, the resulting piece is timeless and endlessly beautiful.  Click on the photo above to learn more about this handsome piece.
