Muncie Pottery 1929 Green Over Lilac Lovebirds Figural Vase #193-9 Haley Design
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 8 3/4 inch tall 'Lovebirds' vase was designed by well known glass designer Reuben Haley. The lovebirds design was originally made famous by Lalique Crystal but Haley re-worked it for Muncie pottery. The rich green glaze over lilac accents the design of the vase very well. Exceptionally crisp mold with great glaze.
Wonderful vase in that it is has no chips, no repairs, no scratches to glaze. FREE from crazing. There are 2 hairlines descending from the rim - see picture 6 (internal runs about 2 inches, external runs less than 1 inch). Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process. The white spots are studio light reflections.
Authentic Muncie Pottery. All pictures are original and un-edited.
