Roseville wall pockets are among the most popular and valuable of its many shapes. The Baneda pattern was produced between 1932 and 1933. Green Baneda pieces are more valuable than pink ones. This particular wall pocket is not often seen, especially in this color and in such excellent condition.This mold is crisp, the colors are rich and vibrant, and the textures are lush. It is decorated with a band of lighter green leaves, vines, and orange pods in two places - between the two handles in the background and also on the front.
Most pieces in this pattern have just one decorated band. The flora are on top of a darker shaded green and blue background finished with a matte glaze. Please excuse any shiny white marks which are due to camera glare. The wall pocket has no cracks, paint loss, or repairs and is in near mint condition.There is clear crazing on its back. For the sake of accuracy, there are some dark very fine superficial surface scratches surrounding the hanging hole. There is also a small stray mark above the hanging hole and a minute nick to its inside edge at about the "4 o'clock" position. The nick does not continue through to the other side and would not interfere with being able to safely hang the vessel. The piece is a little dusty at the very bottom but otherwise is quite clean inside and outside. The wall pocket's back retains the entire triangular ROSEVILLE POTTERY Rv gold and black foil label. Its dimensions are 8-1/2" h x 8" w x 2 d.
It displays beautifully and is a superb example of its kind. What a perfect gift for someone special or just for yourself!
This wall pocket would make an outstanding addition to any collection. Thanks so much for looking. I welcome you to check out my other listings.
