Van Briggle 1907-12 Arts and Crafts Matt Green Calla Lily Vase #636
The Van Briggle Art Pottery was the oldest continuously operating art pottery in the United States, having been established in Colorado Springs, Colorado in 1901 by Artus and Anne Van Briggle. Artus had a significant impact on the Art Nouveau movement in the United States, and his pottery is foundational to American Art Pottery. The Art Nouveau style favored by its founders continues to influence the pottery's designs.
Here we have an excellent example of a 6 1/4 inch tall vase with calla lily molded leaves. Outstanding application of a matt green on a chocolate clay body. This combination almost makes it look like it has copper on it. Although not dated, most chocolate brown clay examples are from 1906-07. Although there is a date range on this piece of 1907-12, we believe this piece to be from around 1907. A truly unique vase. It is difficult to come by chocolate clay pieces with such an outstanding matt green glaze, so here is your chance to add to your collection. Exceptional piece for any collection.
Exceptional vase in that it is undamaged, no chips, no cracks, no scratches to glaze, Free from crazing. I cannot detect any repairs or modifications. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process.
Authentic. Signed Van Briggle. All pictures are original and un-edited.
