“Lost” Work of a Master Craftsman Re-discovered

A recently re-discovered early 20th century ceramic piece by renowned American artist and potter, Adelaide Alsop Robineau, is generating excitement among museums and private collectors alike.

owl-urn-md.jpg“Covered Jar with Owl Design”  has recently been authenticated as an original, but heretofore unknown,  uncataloged piece by famous ceramist Adelaide Alsop Robineau.

This very rare piece, which has been in the private collection of a family in Shasta County for decades, has been independently appraised and scholarly authenticated as the work of Robineau.

Some history on this vase was put together from extensive research by the present owner. It appears to have been started in 1911 in St. Louis and then glazed and finished at a later date in Syracuse, N.Y.

Adelaide Robineau was famous for her innovative use of unique glazes. When Covered Jar with Owl Design is viewed in full light, subtle silver and gold flaking emerges to the eye.

This rare find is currently being offered for sale to private collectors. More about “Covered Vase with Owl Design” can be found at this website: AdelaideRobineau.com
