Credit Line:
Gift of Mr. and Mrs. Forrest Fenn
Inscription:
Made of architectural faience clay (very gritty with high grog content). However, since it is glazed on five sides, it was probably meant for cabinet of mantel display, not to be cemented into a wall. I have not seen another like it and I've seen over 20,000 pieces of Rockwood. It is probably an early product of the Architectural Faience Division (1902-1930). 750 - shape # BZ - B (size) Z (mat) Modeled (carved) Mat Glaze line Impressed on back: ROOKWOOD / FAIENCE / 750/BZ Written in black ink on paper label: ___gola ??CREASE [Prob GILCREASE] FOUNDATION OKLAHOMA,. 1950.
