Cliftwood Pottery 1940s Blue Corset Vase
Here we have a marvelous example of a 5 1/2 inch tall Cliftwood Pottery vase . The glaze on this piece is very interesting: white and blue. It seems to have a Pennsylvania Dutch feel to it because of the colors. Really a unique piece that anyone would be proud to call their own.
Exceptional vase in that it is undamaged, no chips, no cracks, no scratches to glaze, no repairs and mild crazing. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process. The white spots are studio light reflections.
Authentic Cliftwood Pottery. All pictures are original and un-edited.
Height: 5 1/2", Base: 2 3/4", Rim : 4"
Footnote: In 1920 Matthew Rapp and his four sons opened Cliftwood Art Potteries, Inc. on the same property as the previous business. Production moved from the old utilitarian works to more decorative pieces. Matthew died in 1938, leaving his sons John, Carl, Lawrence, and Theodore to run the pottery. Although each son was very competent in different aspects of pottery making, none had the drive to continue the business without their father so they sold the pottery in 1940 to some businessmen from nearby Peoria.
