"Victor" After Hours Bowl, White w/ Flowers; Maybe an after-hours project?
View:  Main (Large)
Lot 206: Bowl  Color: White w/ Flowers  Description: At 5 1/2" in diameter, this is a little smaller than your typical bowl. Nice flowers and a cobalt band on the side. 4 cobalt dots adorn the inside of the bowl. Around the base, it is signed by the craftsman "Rocco Commisso." Wonderful condition with just a few scuffs in the bottom from use. These three items were believed to have been made at the Victor Insulators company around 1915. On Sunday, July 22, 1917, the Democrat and Chronicle (Rochester, NY) listed the people who were drafted from Victor, NY. Rocco Commisso’s name is included. His draft card listed his residence as Victor, NY and his place of work as Victor Insulators Inc, Victor NY. His signature on the draft card matches the signature on these items very closely. This is pretty strong evidence tying these pieces to Rocco Commisso at Victor Insulators. It is highly likely these are one-of-a kind items. An amazing group of go-withs!
