For sale is a lovely vase made by The Fulper Pottery Company of Flemington, NJ. I call this a large "Double Handled Swollen Shoulder Vase". It is done in one of Fulper Pottery's most sought after glazes known as "Cats Eye Flambé". The vase is rather large as it stands 7 1/2" tall and is 6 1/4" wide outside shoulder-handles top measurement.
The vase depicts a rich caramel glaze that is accented with a deep brown/black flambé glaze. The glaze drippings and runs are just wonderful as you can see. This swollen form is accented with 2 handles that rise out of the shoulder and attaches to the cylindrical raised lip flush or even with the top opening. The vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. There are the usual small glaze pops in the dark neck area of the vase. The body of the vase has none.
The vase is marked on the underside bottom with Fulper's racetrack ink stamp signature mark. This would date this vase to have been made circa 1922-1928. This form used to be fairly common to see but I have seen very few examples in the past few years. This is a real popular shape with the Fulper Pottery collectors and was known as shape number 643 in the Fulper catalog pages. It appears that the collectors are hanging on to these beauties.
This is a wonderful example of this form and glaze from Fulper. I'm sure the buyer will be quite pleased with their purchase. This would look outstanding on that Stickley, Mission, Arts and Crafts style bookcase.
