For sale is a very nice art pottery vase made by The Fulper Pottery Company of Flemington, NJ. The vase is made in an "Ovoid" or short "Cylindrical" shape and it is done in one of Fulper Pottery's most beautiful glaze combinations. The glaze combination is called "Green Flambe' ". The vase is a nice cabinet size as it stands just shy of 5" tall and is 4 1/4" in diameter at its widest point.
The vase is done in one of Fulper's most beautiful glaze combinations called Green Flambe'. This vase depicts a glossy green glaze with wonderful glaze runs of brown mixed with black. These runs resemble a volcano with the lava flowing over the top edges and down its side. Towards the top you can see beautiful blue green coloring in the background with the glaze runs dripping down over it.
The vase is considered to be in very good to excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The vase is extremely clean inside and I believe it saw minimal use as a vase. There is some vertical scratches in the glaze glaze runs in 2 separate areas. This can be seen only upon close inspection. The two toned green glaze is very evenly colored with the solid colored green on the bottom 2/3rds and the blue green in the upper 1/3. There are very few pin pops that can be seen. Pin pops are very common with these glazes by Fulper.
This form is very popular with the Fulper Pottery collectors. It is known as shape number "16S" in the Fulper catalog pages and was called a "Rose Bowl" according to the book on Fulper by Hibel-Defalco-Rago. This is a wonderful example of this form and glaze from Fulper. Truly a very nice example of this glaze. The vase is signed on the bottom with Fulper's earliest ink stamp mark. This mark was used during the Vasekraft years and it is the "Fulper" inside a vertical rectangle ink stamp mark. This dates the piece to their earliest period, 1909-1916.
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.
