For sale is a very nice piece of art pottery made by The Van Briggle Pottery Company of Colorado Springs, Colorado. This shape is a squat vase and it is done in a popular two toned glaze. The vase is a nice cabinet size as it stands only 3 1/4" tall and is 6 1/4" in diameter. The bottom has a diameter of 5".

This vase has squat shape similar to a volcano in form. It display a beautiful pattern of embossed arts and crafts style tobacco leaves surrounding the vase with smaller tobacco leaves in between them. Along the top lip area is a band with raised round rivet shaped circles. There are 5large leaves, 5 small leaves, and 5 of these rivets. The detail and crispness of the leaves is just splendid. This pattern is set against one of Van Briggle's most popular glazes known as "Mulberry". The background of the vase is a deep matte mulberry or "burgundy" glaze. It is accented with a speckled country blue over spray on top of the Leaves. This is an early and very well executed glaze combination.

The vase is considered to be in very good to excellent condition as there are no cracks, chips or dings. The piece shows signs of use as it some rust stains inside and the top inside lip shows some wear in the glaze. The vase is signed on the bottom with Van Briggle's incised double A logo for Artus and Anna Van Briggle along with the block lettering "VAN BRIGGLE". This vase has what we collectors and dealers call a dirty bottom with block lettering which helps date this piece to have been made circa 1917-1922.

This is a nice early piece of Van Briggle in a very desired glaze. It is known as shape number 858 in the Van Briggle catalog. This is not a commonly found form. I'm sure the buyer will be quite pleased with their purchase.
