Vases created more than century ago back in Ohio

Published:

ZANESVILLE -- Five vases created more than a century ago at an Ohio pottery plant and displayed at the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis are together again at a museum in eastern Ohio.

The Zanesville Times Recorder reports that the vases created by artists at the former Weller Pottery plant in Zanesville are now on display at the Zanesville Museum of Art.

The hand-painted vases created in the late 19th and early 20th centuries stand from 5- to 7-feet tall. The museum's executive director said the huge vases represent monumental technical achievements in ceramics.

The vases are on display through Oct. 11.
