Muncie Pottery Vase Maroon (Shape 143-7) I, 1930's
Muncie Pottery started production of art pottery in 1919 as the Muncie Clay Products Company. Muncie Pottery started as a subsidiary of the German-American Clay Company. Muncie Pottery like so many of the other American art pottery companies closed its doors as a victim of the depression in 1939.
This Muncie vase is glazed in a rich maroon. This is a lovely handled vase so typical of the 1930's. Beautiful shape and color.Displays exceptionally well. Beautiful shape that will please any collector. In my opinion, this would make a wonderful addition to any Muncie Pottery collection or any pottery collection.
Exceptional vase in that it is undamaged, no chips, no cracks, no scratches to glaze and free from crazing. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process. This item was inspected with a Mil-spec UVA (365NM) and UVC (254NM) high intensity ultra-violet light and no evidence of repair or modification was detected. The white spots are studio light reflections. Dimensions are below.
Authentic and appropriately marked with decorator number I.
