This small, rectangular Rookwood vase was inexpensive commercial ware. Like most commercial pottery, it was formed in a Plaster-of-Paris mold. The use of a mold allowed for decoration to be embossed directly onto the form, which minimized the time it took to decorate. This vase features embossed daisies and a Roi de Blue glaze. It was designed by Rookwood artist Kataro Shirayamadani.
