Marblehead

 

$395.00


For sale is a lovely petite piece of art pottery made by Marblehead Pottery of Marblehead, Mass. The piece of art pottery is a diminutive size and it is known as a squat vase complete w flower frog. The vase stands 1 5/8" tall and is 3 3/8" in diameter. The flower frog stands 1 1/8" tall and is 1 7/8" in diameter.

The vase displays a squat tapered shape with a flower frog to hold flowers nestled inside. The vase has that rich matte blue glaze that made Marblehead Pottery famous. The flower frog also displays that wonderful Marblehead matte blue glaze. It is also a diminutive size flower frog that displays 3 holes for flowers. The frog sits up on 3 feet with arched openings separating each foot. The vase and flower frog is considered to be excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The only issue is a small pin pop in the glaze on the vase.

The vase is signed on the bottom with Marblehead's impressed ship logo along with the capital letters "M" and "P" for Marblehead Pottery. The flower frog is not signed but shows that infamous red clay that Marblehead used and is no doubt a Marblehead flower frog. These diminutive sizes are rather hard to find without damage. To find one with its original flower frog is even rarer. There is no doubt that this frog was made for this vase. Those of you who collect Marblehead Pottery and want a lovely example complete with flower flog do not let this one slip by you. This would look just wonderful in that Stickley, Mission style arts and crafts bookcase. This piece was made circa 1904-1915.

Marblehead Pottery was established in 1904 by Dr. Herbert J. Hall as a Studio Art Pottery in Marblehead, Massachusetts using the art and technique of ceramics manufacturing and decorating as a rehabilitation and therapeutic aid to local sanitarium patients at Hall's Devereux Mansion Sanitarium. Marblehead Pottery stopped producing Art Pottery in 1936. Marblehead Pottery was a small Pottery Company never employing more than 6 workers. Their Pottery is considered somewhat scare as compared to their contemporaries of the day.
