Gonder Pottery 1940's Imperial Chinese Peasant Turqouise Crackle Vase 519
Gonder Ceramic Arts, Inc., was opened by Lawton Gonder in 1941 in Zanesville, Ohio. Gonder made high-grade pottery decorated with flambe, drip, gold crackle, and Chinese crackle glazes. The factory closed in 1957. From 1946 to 1954, Gonder also operated the Elgee Pottery, which made ceramic lamp bases. The company used marks with its name in cursive writing sometimes surrounded by a curvy line.
This Gonder Pottery vase is from the Imperial line and known as the Chinese Peasant vase. The glaze is a great crackled turquoise light ming blue. Original foil sticker is still attached. Perfect decorator piece. Displays well from all sides.
Exceptional vase in that it is undamaged, no chips, no cracks, no scratches to glaze and free from crazing and repairs. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process. The white spots are studio light reflections.
