The March 6, 2011 art pottery auction at Auctions.JustArtPottery.com offers a nice selection of high-end investment art pottery as well as entry level pieces for collectors just starting out. One of the more interesting pottery consignments in the auction is an estate fresh collection of the highly collectible Roseville Baneda pattern. The Baneda wall pockets are particularly rare.
Over the last 14 years, JustArtPottery.com has had the opportunity to sell only a few of the Baneda wall pockets. At one time, the green wall pocket was selling for $5,000 with a waiting list of Roseville wall pocket collectors wanting to purchase the piece to complete their wall pocket collection. In addition to the matching pair of wall pockets, the art pottery auction offers a stunning pair of matching 10″ Roseville Baneda vases in green and pink. These larger vases are seldom seen on the auction block.
All four pieces of Baneda offer very crisp molds, with excellent color and glaze. Best of all the four pieces are in mint condition without damage or repair.
Roseville Pottery introduced the Baneda pattern in 1932. Baneda is considered a “middle period” pattern and is highly sought after by pottery collectors. Each Baneda vase or bowl features a low-relief band of pumpkins including fruit and flowers still on the vine. These designs are hand-decorated in orange and
yellow on a blue background. Green Baneda has the look that is particularly sought-after by Arts and Crafts collectors. Pink Baneda on the other hand offers stronger color contrast and a modern feel that is desired by Art Deco collectors.
To bid on the Roseville Baneda pottery or 150 additional quality pieces of American art pottery currently available in the live, online auction go to Auctions.JustArtPottery.com or Proxibid.com/JustArtPottery.
