Van Briggle Pottery Moth Vase #684, Mulberry, Ca. 1928

The story of the Van Briggle Pottery Company is legendary. The brilliant young Artus Van Briggle, a rising star at the prestigious Rookwood Pottery, leaves Cincinnati, with the hope that the climate of Colorado Springs would abate his failing health. With his young bride Anne Gregory by his side, and the financial support of Rookwood's founder Maria Longworth Storer, he forms the Van Briggle Pottery Company. Following Artus's death in 1904 at the age of 35, Anne Van Briggle becomes president of the company, and remained involved in its operation until her death in 1929.

The Van Briggle Pottery & Tile Company remains one of the oldest American companies still producing art pottery today.

This wonderful diminutive vase, designed by Martha Patton circa 1908 and produced between 1926 and 1930, features a repeating Moth pattern covered in rich mulberry matte glaze with deep blue accenting.

This lovely vase or bowl is in excellent condition, free from chipping, cracking, crazing or restoration, with only a handful of insignificant factory glaze pops to report.

Marked at the base with Van Briggle's double-A logo, and "VAN BRIGGLE COLO. SPGS." incised in block letters.

H 3.25", D 3.5", rim and base 2".
