    Olga Geneva Reed's signature-??

    I've been told by another online appraiser that this is, in all likelihood, an "end of day" or pre-Rookwood piece by Olga Geneva Reed because the chance of initials "OGR" being anyone else is slim to none. Has anyone ever seen her initials on a piece without the Rookwood mark?
    No background on piece...it was passed from antique co-op to flea market, etc. so it's a mystery. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

    Can you post more photos? I am interested in the design on the piece. Is the design cut or pressed in the clay?

    3rd set of mystery "OGR" vase photos

    I acquired the piece almost a year ago, and am still amazed at how unique it is, from the design to the colors to the glazing technique!

    It is lovely for sure. Click here for a piece of Olga's work, you can see how she usually signed things.

    So what's the conclusion? Do you think it is Olga?

    Still can't draw a concllusion on this piece...

    I feel that I still need to look at more of Olga's personal non-Rookwood marks but so far have not found any. The one shown in this discussion thread is very difficult to see, but from what I can see it's different than what's on my vase. I would love to say 'yes' or 'no' definitively, but just don't have enough precise positive information yet - all speculation in my opinion. What conclusion would you draw?
