Here is an absolutely unbelievable find; a complete four piece Fulper Art Pottery Console Set with gorgeous two-tone blue crystalline glaze. The petal shaped bowl measures 16 ¼ inches long by 10 ¼ inches wide by 3 ¼ inches tall; petals are outlined with what I will call a taupe-ochre color glaze. Place matching flower frog in center and fill with flowers for a lovely table arrangement. The 11 hole flower frog measures 5 ¾ inches oval by 3 ½ inches wide by 1 ¼ inches high and also has the taupe-ocher color blended into the blue glaze. The combination is quite earthy and very appealing. Candleholders are oval and measure 7 ½ inches by 5 inches wide by 2 inches high. Fulper pottery was incorporated in 1899; the first art pottery was introduced in 1909. Most manufacturing took place at the Fulper's Trenton, NJ factory. Fulper ceased manufacturing in 1935. The bowl and candleholders carry Fulper's vertical oval ink stamp dating this set to 1922-1928 when that logo design was used. The stamp is sometimes called the "oval racetrack" by some collectors. On the bottom of one candleholder is a partial paper sticker that reads Bamberger & Co. Here's a bit of info on that store: Bamberger's, a department store chain located mainly in New Jersey, but also known to Delaware, Maryland, New York and Pennsylvania was founded in 1893 by Louis Bamberger. In 1929, Bamberger's was purchased by R.H. Macy Co. and is no longer in existence. Thought it might be fun to know where the set was first acquired; lots of history with these pieces. It amazes me to think how many hands this set passed through and still remains in excellent usable condition. It certainly is a beauty.
