Vintage Van Briggle Honey Gold Flower Bowl with Frog

Artus Van Briggle, a descendant of skilled Flemish artisans, married another artist Anne Lawrence Gregory whom he met at art school. Around 1900 Artus and Anne developed the double A enclosed in a square that remains the logo of the Van Briggle Company. Both of these beautiful pieces bear that logo and the bowl is also signed Van Briggle, Colo.Spgs. Artus was in Colorado Springs seeking a healthier climate to cure tuberculosis. There he found materials to produce a superior clay and developed designs for his new pottery line. Unfortunately, the climate did little for his health and he died on July 4, 1904.

Most of the Van Briggle older pieces were a matte finish, but in later years the company produced pieces in a shiny glaze like the one listed here. The flower bowl is 7 3/4" in diameter and 1 3/4" deep. It has the Honey Gold glaze (that is darker than my pictures show) with the green drip glaze. The squash style bowl is gently ribbed and curves in toward the center. The flower frog has the same design and glaze pattern. It is 3 1/2" in diameter with 11 holes and is 1 1/4" high. Both pieces are in excellent vintage condition.
