Exhibited in The Rakow Research Library for the ACGA conference, July 17-21, 2006.
This vase was made in 1905 by John Lofquist and decorated more than 22 years later in May 1927 by John Demuth and Alexander Perry and finished by Nicholas Bach and Paul Ambrosone. On account of its extreme size and weight and the very high cost of manufacture at the present time, it is doubtful if so large a vase will again be made for many years to come. It is decorated in old Waterford design and its use is for American beauty roses.
