For Sale is a wonderful Art and Crafts Styled Vase made by The Fulper Pottery Company of Flemington, NJ. The Vase is done in what I call a "Squat Buttressed Handled" form. The Vase is done in one of Fulper Pottery's most beautiful glaze combinations known as "Leopard Skin". The Vase has a nice size to it as it stands 4 3/4" tall and is 6" in diameter at the Waist or its widest point.
The Vase is accented with 2 Buttressed Style Handles that Rises up from the waist and attached to the top lip perfectly flush or even with the top opening. These appear to be two backward (7's) Shaped Buttress Handles. This Gives this piece that added Arts & Crafts, Mission Flair. This Vase has a green-brown mottled Leopard Skin Crystalline Glaze that is just outstanding. The two tone Pea Green Glaze seems to be the main color of the Vase with the Leopard Skin Crystals covering throughout. These spots are plentiful on both sides of the vase and the pictures speak for themselves. The Glaze displays a two tone green at the neck and a much deeper green from the waist to the bottom. The handles on both sides even have the Leopard Skin Spots.
The Vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. There are a Glaze pops but they are circular in shape and resemble the Leopard Skin spots and fit right in. These are pictured. The Vase is marked on the underside bottom with Fulper's Vertical Rectangular Ink Stamp Signature mark. This was Fulper's earliest marks and was made during the Vasekraft years, circa 1909-1916. This form is one of the most desirable to own in Fulper Pottery. This is known as shape number 452 in the Fulper Pottery Catalog and is simply described as a "Two Handled Jar"
This form used to be fairly common to see but I have seen very few examples in the past few years. It appears that the collectors are hanging on to these beauties. I can honestly say that this is the Nicest Leopard Skin Example I have ever owned!! This is an Outstanding Example of this Form and Glaze from Fulper. I'm quite sure the Buyer will be very pleased with their purchase. This would look Great on that Stickley, Mission, Arts and Crafts Style Bookcase.
