For Sale is a very nice Vase made by The Fulper Pottery Company of Flemington, NJ. The shape is known as a "Double Handled Swollen Form" and it is done in one of Fulper Pottery's most beautiful glaze combinations. The Vase is a nice size as it stands 7 1/2" tall and is 6 1/4" in diameter outside handles measurement.
The Vase depicts a Mirrored Dark Blue with a hint of Flambe' at the top lip. The Glaze is so reflective it you can almost see yourself in it. The Swollen Form is accented with 2 Handles that Rises out of the shoulder and attaches to the Cylindrical Raised Lip flush or even with the top opening. The top of the vase reminds me of a Volcano with handles.
The Vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. There is a scuff mark on the upper front just above the waist . The Glaze is very evenly Colored and there are very, very few pin pops. Truly an excellent example of this glaze. The Vase is signed on the underside bottom with "Fulper" Incised inside a Racetrack or Oval mark. This would date this Vase to have been made, Circa 1916-1922. This form is very popular with the Fulper Pottery collectors. It is known as shape number 643 in the Fulper Catalog Pages and was called a "Shoulder and Handled Vase" according to the book on Fulper by Hibel-Defalco-Rago.
This is a wonderful example of this Form and Glaze from Fulper. I'm sure the Lucky Buyer will be very pleased with their purchase. This would look outstanding on that Stickley, Mission, Arts and Crafts style Bookcase.
