For Sale I have a wonderful piece of Art Pottery made by the Terra Cotta Tile Company (TECO) of Terra Cotta, Illinois which was near Chicago. I have a beautiful Matt Green Bulbous Bud Vase. The Vase is a good size as it stands about 5 1/2" tall and is 4" in diameter at its widest point.

The Vase has a very soft satin smooth Matte Green Glaze that Teco Pottery was so well known for. Their Mat Green Glaze is a Mint Green with charcoaling color that is as unique as the Pottery Company itself. The vase displays a squat bulbous form with a Cylindrical Neck that rises up and Flairs out. The Vase is a very pleasing form and is considered to be a Rare and not so commonly found Shape by Teco. The Vase was designed to hold small flowers.

The vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The piece is signed Twice on the bottom with Teco's infamous "T" with the "eco" underneath the right side of the T. The form also has the indented ring where this mark lies. This is the sign of an Original Teco as the Fakes do not have this same bottom. There is also the Shape Number "49" impressed just under the Teco Marks. The exterior edge is ground smooth very similar to Hampshire Pottery's method of finishing.

Teco exemplifies pottery of the "Prairie School" Arts and Crafts movement of which Frank Lloyd Wright made so popular. In 1886 the Gates Pottery was established as a subsidiary with William D. Gates as its president. Gates used the facilities to experiment with clays and glazes in an effort to design a line of Art Pottery which led to the introduction of Teco Pottery (TErra COtta) in 1902. This is a quality piece of Art Pottery made by one of the Arts and Crafts Movement most important Potters. Teco competed heavily against Grueby and Fulper for this once flourishing market.

This is a rather Hard to Find Form and they are usually found with damage. This one I am happy to report has NO DAMAGE. This Piece of Teco is known as Shape #49 in the Teco Catalog Pages. This piece of Teco is considered early as it was made, Circa 1902-1915.
