For sale is a nice piece of art pottery made by The Hampshire Pottery Company of Keene, NH. The item is called a Squat Swollen form and it is done in Hampshire Pottery's most desirable frothy matte blue glaze. The vase is a nice size as it stands 5" tall and is 6" in diameter at the shoulder. The foot has a diameter of 3 1/8".

The vase displays a squat form with high shoulders, raised neck and a wide top opening to receive a batch of flowers. The vase has an outstanding frothy or mottled matte blue glaze. It is one of the nicest mottled glazes I have seen on Hampshire Pottery. That says a lot as I live here in New Hampshire. I also have the smaller matte green in this exact form with some char-coaling in another listing running right now.

The vase is considered to be in very good to excellent condition as there are no cracks, chips, nicks or dings. There is a minor glaze pop on the top lip the size of a pencil tip and not obtrusive at all. There are a few others around in a few areas around the vase as well. This is factory as it was made this way. The piece is signed on the bottom with the incised script "Hampshire Pottery" signature mark along with the M in a circle and the form number 54/2. According to my early Hampshire Pottery catalog reprint booklet of 1916 they made this form in three sizes. This is the medium size of the three.

Since this vase has the "M" in a Circle I can date it. The "M" in a circle mark was used during Cadmon Robertson's tenure with Hampshire Pottery from 1904-1914. He was their chemist and helped to develop over 900 different glazes. This mark was used to honor his Wife "Emoretta". She was the sister of the founder, James Scollay Taft. This will make a wonderful addition to any matte blue pottery collection of art pottery. It would look great on that Stickley, mission arts and crafts bookcase.

Hampshire Pottery started producing Matte Glazes in 1891. This was 7 years earlier than their main Competitor "Grueby Faience" of Boston, Mass. Hampshire Pottery resembles the style of Grueby but were much more affordable as they were mold made pieces as opposed to hand thrown. Thus the nickname "Poor Mans Grueby" was given to this line by the Grueby Pottery collectors. Hampshire Pottery closed after Cadmon Robertson's death in 1914 and reopened again in 1916. They produced Art Pottery until 1917 and then they focused on Dinnerware for Hotels and Restaurants along with Souvenirs until 1923 when Hampshire Pottery Closed permanently.
