Peony - Late Period - 1942
Roseville began production of matte glazed Peony in 1942. There are approximately 65 different shapes. The line depicts one, on the smaller forms, or two fully open blooms on textured backgrounds of coral fading to green, Goldenrod fading to green, or a light turquoise. The blooms are either white with yellow centers or yellow with brownish-pink centers. The leaves and stems that accent the blooms are generally a vivid green that fade into the background color.
Most of the forms have a smooth rim. The exceptions being the ewers, baskets, bowls and the wall pocket.
This line typically has the raised (relief) "Roseville" script mark, which includes "U.S.A." and a form number - size.
More in-depth detail is available in any one of the books in the Bibliography.
