On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 744

William H. Grueby (1867–1925), founder of Grueby Faience Company, developed the characteristic glazes for which the pottery became renowned. A number of important designers, including George Prentiss Kendrick and Addison LeBoutillier, contributed to the look and design of Grueby pottery. Although Grueby pottery is traditionally known for the matte green glaze that became ubiquitous in Arts and Crafts potteries, this vase features an unusual mustard yellow glaze. At Grueby, potters crafted the pots and modelers—usually female—finished them. The design of the vase, which alternates between stylized flat leaf and thin elegant scroll, is attributed to the Grueby company's first director of design, George P. Kendrick.
