It is known as "bristol glass" and the shape is a vase. The vase measures 10" tall and is 3 3/8" in diameter at the rim and 3 1/2"in diameter at the base. the vase depicts a lovely arrangement of various flowers hand painted on the front of it. It has a stem full of bluebells and a cream colored rose in the foreground. There are a couple of daisies and babies breath finished off with various leaf clusters and reed style leaves or grass. The color tones the artist used are soft and pleasing. This type of glass was very popular during the victorian era. This is all set on a satin white background glass. There is a crimped edge at the top rim that is accented with gold enamel at the indentations. the vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, chips, nicks or dings.

They didn't take the time to polish and counter sink them. This took too much time and was to costly. this piece was made circa 1860-1910.

Dugan Art Glass, Ruffled Cobalt Blue Frit Vase, Nice~~~ http://www.antiques.com/classified/38570/Antique-Dugan-Art-Glass--Ruffled-Cobalt-Blue-Frit-Vase--Nice--- For sale i have a lovely vase made by the dugan glass company of indiana, pa. The vase is in a very desirable shape. I would call this shape a "ruffled gourd" with "white frit" decoration vase. The vase is a good size as it stands 6 3/8" tall and is 5" in diameter. It has also been brought to my attention that this was called a celery vase. In period catalogs it is indistinctly called venetian, pompeian, or japanese, which all refer to imported fashion crazes of the period. <p>the vase displays that ever popular cobalt blue glass with a tri-fold fluted ruffled edge. What i mean by this there are 3 petals that flair out and over and 3 rising upwards. The entire border is ruffled very nicely. What makes this an interesting piece is before they executed the bending and the ruffling is they rolled it in a white frit glass power while the vase was hot. This picked up the glass pieces and then it was put back in the oven and fired and the white frit became part of the vase. Looking at the top of the vase they did a horizontal almost ribbon like edge with the body of the base being done in a vertical direction. You can feel the glass in it.The vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks or dings. The piece is unsigned as is the case with these pieces. This method reminds me a little bit some of the lct tiffany favrile cypriote glass ewxamples. This is a quality piece of early american art glass. This piece was made very early, circa 1898-1906. There is documentation that this was a design in the 1898 catalog of the national glass company in which thomas dugan was a partner. The dugan glass company came into being 1902-1906.`

Dugan Glass Company, Rose Bowl, Aqua, Gold, White Frit~~ http://www.antiques.com/classified/38571/Antique-Dugan-Glass-Company--Rose-Bowl--Aqua--Gold--White-Frit-- For sale i have a very pretty piece of glass made by the dugan glass company of indiana, pennsylvania. The shape is a pinched rose bowl and the pattern is venetian, pompeian, or japanese, which all refer to imported fashion crazes of the period.. The rose bowl measures approximatel 4 1/16" tall and is 3 15/16" wide. the rose bowl has a base color of aqua decorated with vertical ribs of whie and iridized gold frit. This technique was introduced by dugan and was meant to compete with the the great czech glass houses of the art nouveau period. The rose bowl was mold made and put back in the oven and fired and the white and gold frit became part of the vase. Frit is little pieces of glass that were put back in the oven with the form however there is a slight variation in the composition of the particles making it possible to use as a surface decoration without completely blending and melting into the piece being worked on. You can actually feel it on the surface of the glass. the rose bowl is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks or dings. The piece is unsigned as is the case with these pieces. this method reminds me a little bit some of the lct tiffany favrile cypriote glass examples. This is a quality piece of early american art glass. There is documentation that this was a design in the 1898 catalog of the national glass company in which thomas dugan was a partner.

Durand Art Glass Vase, Gold Iridescence, Cabinet Vase~~ http://www.antiques.com/classified/38573/Antique-Durand-Art-Glass-Vase--Gold-Iridescence--Cabinet-Vase-- For auction i have a lovely vase made by the durand glass company of vineland, nj. The vase is a very pleasing size as it is known as a cabinet vase and it is done in their "gold lustre" style of art glass. The shape would be considered a tapered shoulder vase. The vase stands 4 5/8" tall and is 2 1/2" in diameter at the shoulder. The vase displays a wonderful matte gold aurene, favrile iridescence. The color is just outstanding. You can see matte purples, blues and some fuchsia color tones. The base glass appears to be a clear glass. The iridescence on this vase emits an amber glow when looking inside. The vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks or chips to the piece. The top rim is polished and smooth. The vase does not have a polished countersunk pontil. The top being flat and polished means that this piece was blown from the top and cut there, then polished smooth. The bottom side of the vase is extremely nice and shows minimal signs of wear. There is strong fuchsia in the middle with strong blue highlights around the bottom rim. There are teeny, tiny flea spots along the rim. This is factory and not damage as these are common with pieces cut from the top. The piece is unsigned but it appears to be shape number 1722 in durand's catalog pages. Durand art glass starting blowing the iridescent fancy wares in 1924. This was when the quezal art glass company of brooklyn, new york went out of business. Durand bought all the existing inventory and acquired many of the molds that quezal used. Martin bach jr and a few of the employees of quezal migrated to durand and set up shop. Durand was making this art nouveau glass for only a short time as victor durand died in 1931 from complications from an automobile accident. When he died, so did the fancy shop. Durand art glass in the iridescent gold's and blues is somewhat rarer than his contemporaries of the day like l.C.T. Tiffany favrile, steuben aurene, and quezal. They were in business for much more than 7 years. This is a quality piece of art glass that you don't commonly see. So purchase with confidence as i'm sure this will enhance one's art glass collection. This is a rare cabinet size from durand. You collectors of durand do not let this one pass you by. This piece was made circa 1924-1931.

Imperial Art Glass, Lead Lustre Freehand Vase, Nice http://www.antiques.com/classified/38576/Antique-Imperial-Art-Glass--Lead-Lustre-Freehand-Vase--NICE For sale i have a lovely art glass vase blown by the imperial glass company of bellaire, ohio. This pattern line was called "freehand" and "lead lustre". The vase is a good size as it stands 6 1/2" tall and is 4 1/2" at the shoulder. The top opening is 3" in diameter at its widest point. the vase displays a very pleasing shape as i would call it a classic grecian urn shape and was probably the most popular shape in art glass vases. The wide flaring mouth is very thin and delicate. The pumpkin orange iridescence on calcite white base glass gives this a european flavor in color but it is definitely american. This is also known as cased glass. This is somewhat a rare color to find this vase as it is more commonly found in the blue iridescence. The mirror like finish is the trademark of imperial lead lustre line. the vase is considered to be in very good condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. There are signs of use as there are several areas around the vase that show the white base glass coming through. These show up as very small white dots and a few areas have elongated white coming through. This is common on the lead lustre line. These vases didn't fare well when rubbed against other objects. The vase is unsigned but it does display a counter sunk polished pontil, the mark of a quality piece of hand blown art glass. These more than likely had a paper label that simply fell off over time. This vase is still considered to be a very nice example and it is in a much rarer color. this piece was from imperial's "freehand lustre line" of art glass. In my research i read that imperial also tried to lure steuben aurene and tiffany favrile glass blowers into their shop with enticing employment offers. Some of these workers migrated as well. This vase was made circa 1923-1925 as imperial's freehand lustre line was only in existence for 3 years. This is a quality piece of art glass and i am sure the buyer will not be disappointed. the bright whites spots you see are reflective camera glaze. The iridescence in this vase is like a mirror. If you look real close you can see the camera in the reflection!!

Jack In The Pulpit, Vaseline/teal Opalescent Flower~~~ http://www.antiques.com/classified/38577/Antique-Jack-in-the-Pulpit--Vaseline-Teal-Opalescent-Flower--- For sale i have a lovely jack in the pulpit art glass vase. I believe this vase to have been made in the stourbridge area of england. The vase is a nice cabinet size as it stands 8 1/4" tall.

The vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. There isn't even a flea nick. The piece is unsigned and has a rough pontil scar from when the vase was removed from the blowing pipe. This is also a sign of early glass. This is a wonderful vase and i sure the buyer will be very pleased with their purchase. This vase was made in the late 1800's, circa 1895-1899.

Jefferson Glass Company, Jack In The Pulpit Brides Vase http://www.antiques.com/classified/38578/Antique-Jefferson-Glass-Company--Jack-in-the-Pulpit-Brides-Vase For auction i have a very hard to find piece of art glass made by the jefferson glass company of steubenville, ohio. The shape is a jack in the pulpit bride's vase and it is made in vaseline or canary glass. The vase measures approximately 11 3/4" tall when resting in the metal base. It is approximately 4" wide at the flare of the rim. the vase depicts the woodland flower form of the jack-in-the-pulpit or calla lily that rest in a metal frame that is silver plated i believe as it is somewhat tarnished however has no markings. The jack-in-the-pulpit form became very popular in the art nouveau or victorian era and carried through from 1880-1914 and several glass companies experimented with this form to compete with the popularity of tiffany studios favrile stemware for dinner parties of the rich. The peak of the flower is slightly twisted and adds character to the vase. The bottom of the stem was cut from the mold and polished and beveled. This rests comfortably into a small metal frame with curled legs and almost reminds me of wrought iron. the vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no chips, crack, nicks or dings. This is remarkable as this vase is over 100 years old. It does have some light surface scratches on the inside from being used and cleaned to get the calcium deposits removed. There is still some dirt in the bottom of the vase but i'm sure it will come out by the new owners efforts. I just don't have something that narrow or long to fit down the neck of the vase. there are no markings however i have done quite a bit of research and all efforts lead to jefferson glass company. This company was in business from 1900-1933. They only produced this type of opalescent vaseline glass from 1900-1906. There are very few examples that have survived and there is very little information on them. There is a book by david a peterson named "vaseline glass:canary to contemporary" and has written that "jefferson produced some of the finest vaseline glass during the early part of the 20th century. according to peterson, jefferson's canary opalescent vaseline was made for only 3 years from 1903-1905.

Kralik Art Glass Vase, Art Deco, Sea Grass Decoration http://www.antiques.com/classified/38579/Antique-Kralik-Art-Glass-Vase--Art-Deco--Sea-Grass-Decoration For auction i have a lovely piece of art glass made by wilhelm kralik sohn of eleonorenhain bohmen (bohemia). This is now modern day "czechoslovakia". It is a large art deco shaped vessel with an accordion style belly. It is a rather good size vase as it measures 7 1/8" tall and is 5 7/8" wide. the vase displays five wide sea grass style decorations rising up from the bottom of the vessel. They reach the top band of the "accordion" part of the vase. There are also thin reeds in between each leaf of grass which is very pleasing. The colors of the leaves and reeds are a neon green softly muting into a pea green. They are outlined with a translucent cobalt blue and the effect it creates is just stunning!! The leaves and reeds are set on a clear or what is referred in kralik's line as a uranium background or base glass. this vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no chips, cracks, nicks or dings. The piece was blown from the top, and not the bottom. This was typical of kralik as their american contemporaries such as tiffany favrile, steuben aurene, durand and quezal blew almost of their vases from the bottom. This explains the countersunk polished pontil. The vase is signed with the acid etched "czechoslovakia" in block lettering and is the most commonly found kralik signature mark. this is a quality piece of european art glass and would enhance any art glass collection. The vase would make a lovely addition to any art deco or art nouveau decor. This piece was made, circa 1905-1920. I'm sure the lucky winner will be elated with their purchase.

Kralik Art Glass, Blue Waves On Textured Gold, Very Rare!! http://www.antiques.com/classified/38581/Antique-Kralik-Art-Glass--Blue-Waves-on-Textured-Gold--Very-Rare-- For sale i have an outstanding vase made by wilhelm kralik sohn of eleonorenhain bohmen (bohemia) which is now the modern day "czech republic". I call this pattern "blue waves" and it is very similar to a loetz phanomen decoration. The vase is a nice cabinet size as it stands 5 1/4" tall and is 3 5/8" in diameter at the base. The top has a diameter of 2" outside diameter. The vase display a wonderful wave pattern that is done in a blue glass. The main or base color of the glass is clear and it has wonderful deep rich textured gold iridescence. The texture of the gold iridescence runs vertical cal along with the waves running horizontally give this piece a striking appearance. The shape is european all the way. It resembles a gourd with an extended flared neck. When unlit the iridescence glows as you can see beautiful purples, blues and fuchsia. The vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The vase is not signed but it does have a wonderful nicely polished top rim and no polished pontil. All vases are blown from the top. Pontil marks have nothing to do with which end of the glass it was blown from. The pontil is from the punty rod being attached when a piece had to go into the glory hole for additional work ie finished rim or additional decoration. This decoration has kind of a deco style to it. If you collect works of austrian jugendstil art nouveau glass, or american art glass by tiffany and steuben, please consider this work of art. This vase will certainly become a conversation piece for discussion. This is a quality piece of art glass and i'm sure the buyer will not be disappointed. This vase was made circa 1905-1920.

The green base glass is very similar to steuben's verre de soie (glass of silk). It feels like it to the touch and also appears very similar in appearance. The raised neck about the shoulder give this piece that much needed added height. The vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The top of the lip is polished as is typical of european art glass. This means it was blown from the top and the cut from the blowing pipe and polished smooth. This is why there is not a counter sunk polished pontil on the bottom. The piece is signed "czechoslovakia" in block letters along the bottom. The signature mark is in a straight line along the edge. This is a quality piece of art glass rarely found. I search all of my reference books and on-line and i could not find a similar example.

Rindskopf, Pinched Tri-fold Decorated Vase, Very Nice~~ http://www.antiques.com/classified/38685/Antique-Rindskopf--Pinched-Tri-Fold-Decorated-Vase--Very-Nice-- For sale i have a wonderful piece of art glass blown by josef rindskopf of bohemia which is now modern day czech republic. the item is call a "pinched tri- fold decorated green glat" vase. The vase stands 9 3/8" tall. The bottom bulbous area has a diameter of 4 1/2" and the top of the vase is 4 1/4" in diameter. this vase is one for those who are looking to collect rare excellent examples of rindskopf art glass. The vase has a pinched form on three sides and a tri-fold top. This is very art nouveau in style. The vase depicts a pulled feather decor over a teal green base glass when held to the light. It has an outstanding feathering effect starting at the tri-fold top and it works it way to the bottom with 10 distinct fingers rolling into the bottom curvature. The green favrile, aurene iridescent is good as is the iridescence in the decorated feather pulls. You can see some white with purple and teal colors. When held to the light it is truly beautiful. the vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The piece is unsigned as is the case with rindskopf pieces of art glass. They more than likely had a paper label. The vase does have the countersunk polished pontil, the sign of quality art glass. I have been a collector and dealer for some 35+ years. I have only seen a few of these vases with this colored decor. I would i also want to point out the decoration and execution of this vase is very similar to loetz. This leads me to believe that rindskopf blew some of loetz's shapes for export at the turn of the century. I'm sure the lucky buyer will cherish this vase for years to come. The vase was made in the early 1900's, circa 1905-1920.

Stevens & Williams, Cranberry Finger Bowl And Under Plate http://www.antiques.com/classified/38688/Antique-Stevens---Williams--Cranberry-Finger-Bowl-and-Under-Plate For sale i have a wonderful victorian art glass finger bowl and under plate made by the stevens & williams company of stourbridge, west midlands england. The finger bowl and plate are done in the ever so popular cranberry with amber machine threaded edges. The two pieces together stand 3" tall. The finger bowl itself stands 2 5/8" tall and is 5" in diameter. The plate stands 1" tall and is 5 7/8" in diameter. the finger bowl and the under plate both have ruffled edges, eight to be exact. They both display a very lovely cranberry background glass with machine threaded edges in an amber glass. The detail in the threading is just outstanding. It is so precise, yet graceful in form and execution. the finger bowl and plate are considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, or chips. There is no loss to any of the threads on either the bowl or the plate. The only issue is a thread skip on the bottom starting thread on the bowl and both pieces have tiny, tiny flea nicks to a only few threads. This can only be seen when held up to the light. This is fairly common as these were used items and they are extremely delicate. the two pieces have no signature mark but they both have a polished counter sunk pontil. This is the sign of quality hand-blown art glass. When i first found this set several years ago i first thought they were steuben. I quickly learned they were earlier and were made from the same company in england that frederick carder immigrated from. It's possible he was there when these were made. frederick carder (1864-1963) worked at stevens & williams 1881-1902 known for museum quality works in the art nouveau style. (also founded steuben glass works in corning, new york in 1903) this is quality art glass from the victorian era and i'm positive the lucky winner will not be disappointed. These would enhance any art glass collection even those who collect l.C. T. Favrile, steuben aurene, durand, and quezal. This finger bowl and under plate were made circa 1880-1895.

Stevens & Williams, Opaline + Jade Cordial Glass, Nice http://www.antiques.com/classified/38689/Antique-Stevens---Williams--Opaline---Jade-Cordial-Glass--Nice For sale i have a lovely cordial made by the stevens and williams glass company of stourbridge, west midlands england. The piece stands 6 1/4" tall. The foot has a diameter of 2 3/4" and the opening at the top has a diameter of 3 1/8" outside measurement. the cordial displays a very beautiful translucent light jade green cup that rises up from a round opaline foot. The cup sits on a nicely applied opaline stem. The glass blowing is so perfect it appears that the cup and the stem were blown from 1 piece of glass. This is not the case as this is a 3 part cordial. There is the round foot, the applied stem with the cup being fused to the stem to look like 1 piece. the piece is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The piece is unsigned as is the case with most of these. They more than likely had a paper label that simply fell off over time. There are a few white inclusions from the mixtures of opaline and jade along with an air bubble in the cup portion. This does not affect the value what so ever. these pieces are commonly confused with steuben as this glass looks similar. Steuben never made this shape and the s&w jades are more of a pastel where as steuben's very much more vibrant. Steuben did make a similar one but the jade on steuben is much denser and not so translucent. Frederick carder worked for stevens & williams from 1881-1902. It is very possible that he created this formula for them during his employment with them. It is known that this glass was not produced during his tenure. this is a quality piece of art glass and i'm sure the lucky winner will not be disappointed with their purchase. This piece was made circa 1915-1928. I firmly believe it was produced to compete with steuben's jades and rosalines at the time.

Trevaise Glass, Pulled Feathers Vase, Outstanding Detail http://www.antiques.com/classified/38692/Antique-Trevaise-Glass--Pulled-Feathers-Vase--Outstanding-Detail For sale i have a fabulous vase made by the alton manufacturing company of sandwich, mass. This vase is know as a "trevaise" and its pattern is done in one of the most sought after by art glass collectors. The pattern is called "pulled feathers" and it is simply gorgeous!! I would call the shape a swollen shoulder form. This is probably one of the nicest executed decorated vases by trevaise that i have ever owned. The vase stands 6" tall and is 3 1/2" in diameter. The vase has a very pleasing form and the colors are spectacular. The two toned greens with gold feathering on top is simply beautiful. When holding the vase and turning the iridescence is just outstanding. You can see beautiful hues of fuchsia, purples, gold's and greens. The feathering is pulled from the bottom to the top of the vase. The feathers are very wide at the bottom and as they are pulled towards the top they compact and display the appearance of a peacocks feathering. The vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. There is the usual factory imperfections in the finish like pock (bubble, inclusions) marks around the piece. I am told this is very common with the trevaise pieces. The vase is not signed on the bottom but it does display that counter sunk polished pontil. The is the mark of quality art glass and typical of the american art glass movement. Many of these vases have counterfeit l.C.T. Tiffany favrile signature marks. I am very happy to announce that this one does not. When i first bought this i though it was a tiffany vase but my expert friend informed me differently. It is what it is and it carries its own established value in the art glass world. The alton manufacturing company produced an art glass line called "trevaise". This line was supervised by a former tiffany studios glassblower, james h. Grady. He was in charge of its production. Their art glass productions was meant to look just like l.C.T. Tiffany favrile and quezal art glass. These art glass pieces resembled tiffany and quezal glass both in form and technique. Several of the glass blowers from tiffany studios and quezal worked in this studio producing extremely close copies of favrile glass. The company was only in business for 1 year, 1907-1908 and it didn't prove profitable. Trevaise vases are much rarer than tiffany and are considered not to be equal in value. If this was a real tiffany vase it would probably sell for $5000-$6000. Of course, this is much less than a tiffany vase of similar form and decoration. Here is your chance to own a very rare piece of art glass made for 1 year and 1 year only. I'm sure the buyer will not be disappointed!! Truly an investment piece and will look great on that stickley, arts and crafts, mission style bookcase.

Boch Freres Art Deco Keramis Vase Biches Bleues Charles Catteau http://www.antiques.com/classified/38694/Antique-Boch-Freres-Art-Deco-Keramis-Vase-Biches-Bleues-Charles-Catteau For auction i have a lovely art pottery vase made by boch freres/charles catteau of belgium. The vase is the most famous of the charles catteau designs and is known as the "biches bleues" vase. This is one the larger biches bleues vase i have ever owned. I would considered this a "globe" shape. The vase stands and impressive 9 1/4" tall and is 9 1/4" in diameter at its widest point. the vase displays 4 gazelles feeding on the grass and trees above. Some people refer to these as deer but they look more like gazelles to me. I don't believe deer would have spots like fawns and antlers. The deep iris purple/blue accented with turquoise blue body against the creamy beige background is very pleasing. The other boch freres vases in this pattern i have had before had one 3 of these gazelles. I believe because of its large diameter that had to add an extra gazelle for proportions. There is more work in this piece than the others. the vase is considered to be in excellent condition as it has no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The background shows crazing but all of the biches bleues pieces do as that was the intent of charles catteau. The vase is signed with the round with rectangle inside ink stamp "keramis made in belgium" signature mark. The vase also carries the artist signature mark of "ch. Catteau" for charles catteau (1880-1966) and d-943 for the design, "biches bleues". There is also the mold number 894 impressed. This can be clearly seen on the bottom. There is also the letter a with a check mark symbol or the letter j above the ink stamp signature mark. The was more than likely the finishers initial or mark. these vases are rather hard to find and highly desirable. I have had about 30 pieces in my 35 years as a collector in vases and chargers. I have never had a vase this large in diameter. I would consider this somewhat a rare find in this size. I'm sure those of you who collect this pattern and are missing this size will be delighted with their purchase. those of you collecting and decorating in art deco will love the way this vase displays. This vase was made, circa 1925.

The cord set and socket are original to the lamp and the lamp does work. the lamp base is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, chips, nicks or dings. There is a rough spot on the bottom where the lamp was pulled away from the mold but does not show when it is displayed and this was done at the time of manufacturing. The lamp should have a lamp shade between 6 1/2 to 7 inches in height as to not show the light bulb. You should always bring your lamp base with you when trying to find the proper fitting shade as there are many different styles of lamps to compliment your base. I'm sure the lucky winner will not be disappointed with their newest decorative choice as lighting is an important choice for every room of the home. the lamp base was made circa 1930-1940.

Burley Winter Pottery, Double Handled Vase, Great Glaze!! http://www.antiques.com/classified/38697/Antique-Burley-Winter-Pottery--Double-Handled-Vase--Great-Glaze-- For sale i have a wonderful example of art pottery made by the burley and winter pottery company of crooksville, ohio. The piece is a double handled vase and stands 7 5/8" tall and is 7" wide outside handles measurement. The vase displays a very nice mottled glaze. It is done in a light mauve background blended with a sage green mottle. Burley winter pottery is rarely decorated because the beauty of their work is in their very pleasing shapes and artistic glazes. This particular vase has two distinctly different sides as the first picture shows a very nice drippy glaze over mottling. This side of the vase has a deeper mauve or dusty rose glaze that goes all the way to the foot of the vase. The second picture shows the opposite side that is a lighter mauve and the mottling on this side is spectacular. There is also a nice drip effect that stops at the shoulder of the vase and the mottling on the main body is soft and fairly consistent all the way to the foot. The foot is glazed in a sage green with hints of robin's egg blue and cream. This is just a delightful vase! The vase is considered to be in very good to excellent condition as there is a very minor chip on the foot that i have photographed in picture 5 only for accuracy. I have a 10x zoom lens camera so it shows more here than when actually looking at the piece. It does not show when displayed. There are a couple of small glaze pops that happened during in manufacturing and do not detract from the vases beauty. The piece is signed "45" which is the shape number. The original burley winter pottery company was in business from 1872-1932. It has somewhat of a complex history as there were quite a few potters named burley in the ohio valley area and also several companies with burley in their names. There were potters dating back as early as 1825 in the crooksville, ohio area with the burley name and even as late as 1988 was under management of the grandsons of w. N. Burley. These are the ancestors to the original potter "burley and winters". They are making pottery in the same exact building today using some of the same molds that were found. They are using different glazes to establish the difference. They are also signed new burley winter. This vase would look outstanding in any mission, arts and crafts, country or shaker setting. This vase was made circa 1900-1920.

Polia Pillin Mid Century Modern Horses Cylindrical Vase~~ http://www.antiques.com/classified/38703/Antique-Polia-Pillin-Mid-Century-Modern-Horses-Cylindrical-Vase-- For sale i have a lovely art pottery vase made by polia pillin of los angeles, california. This style produced by her is what your mid century modern art pottery collectors are looking for. The vase is a very nice cabinet size. It measures 4 3/8" tall and is 3 3/4" in diameter. The vase has a wonderful complex hi gloss background glaze. It displays horizontal rings of several different colors that somewhat resemble a desert sunset or sand art. You can see rose, smokey blue, hazy gray and deep burgundy or brown. These are like horizontal banded rings of color. On the front side she painted two horses prancing or facing each other. The back side shows another horse prancing along the side of one of the 2 horses on the front.The colors are just spectacular. The horses have turquoise, mustard yellow, salmon and other accents. You can clearly see the influence of picasso with her style of painting. The vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. There is the usual crazing that is typical of most of her work. I believe her formula's intentional caused the crazing and it adds character to the piece. The vase is signed on the bottom with "pillin" written in stylized letters in a black glaze. Polia pillin first learned how to throw pottery at hull house in chicago in the early 1940's. Her and her husband moved to los angeles in 1948 and established a pottery studio in their garage. Polia pillin perfected the technique of painting on wet clay with colored clays. After decorating each pot, the pottery was fired then covered with transparent glaze and re-fired. The end result was abstract art on a piece of pottery with a luminous, glass like finish that is unmistakably recognizable. She was born in 1909 and died in 1992. Her pottery has become some of the most highly desirable and collected today. This is just another one of her works of art in clay. I'm sure the buyer will not be disappointed. This piece was made circa, 1960-1980.

Zanesville Pottery, Matte Green Tobacco Leaf Vase http://www.antiques.com/classified/38704/Antique-Zanesville-Pottery--Matte-Green-Tobacco-Leaf-Vase For sale i have a splendid arts and crafts style vase made by the zanesville stoneware pottery company of zanesville, ohio. The vase is done in the very desirable matt green glaze and the shape is what we call a shoulder shaped vase. The vase is rather large as it stands 8 1/4" tall and is 5 1/2" in diameter at the shoulder. The vase depicts a large tobacco leaf on the front side and a smooth back side. The matt green glaze is a real pleaser in the arts and crafts decorating scheme. You can see veining under the thick matt green glaze. The matt green has a glaze very similar to hampshire pottery's cucumber matte green glaze. The glaze is thick and thinner towards the bottom edge. The vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, chips, nicks or dings. The only issues is a few very small pin point glaze pops around the vase and is common with most zanesville pieces. There is a small area on the lip that shows a glaze miss and there are some along the bottom edge pictured. This is factory and it was made this way. The vase is unsigned but it is know as shape number 102. Usually these numbers are impressed into the bottom but the thick glaze is covering them. Usually zanesville's has a clear beige sandy colored bottom but this one does not. The green glaze has obscured the mold number 102 and cannot be seen. I guarantee this to be an original zanesville 102 leaf vase in matte green. This is a wonderful form and would look just fine in any early matte green art pottery collection. I'm sure it would look just fine on that stickley bookcase. This vase was made in the early 1900's, circa 1910-1920.

The stopper appears that it might have some chips along the flange that sits down into the bottle. I found this with a cork like material applied to where the stopper inserts into the neck of the bottle. This was cleverly done by the previous owner and does not detract from this piece or functionability. It actually protects the glass from any further damage. It appears that you can remove this but i will leave that up to the new owner. this is a very nice decanter with great iridescence. Normally you find these without the stopper and they work great as a flower vase. It is always a treat to find these with their stoppers.
