In 1899, when Artus Van Briggle stepped off the train in Colorado Springs he must have felt worlds away from the studios of Paris and the landscapes of Italy where his extraordinary talents had so recently flourished. Here, however, surrounded by the beauty of the Rocky Mountains, the defining moments of his life would occur; the twin destinies of a great artistic triumph and an imminent personal tragedy would unfold, leaving in their wake the dawn of a 100 year artistic legacy - Van Briggle Pottery - an American tradition in art pottery since 1899.
This Van Briggle tulip bowl may be small but it is beautiful and mighty! The persian rose glaze is a rich, deep red and purple. Out of all the glazes, this is my favorite. Great piece for the mantle and always American made. Displays well from all angles. What a wonderful vase!
This item was inspected with a Mil-spec UVA (365NM) and UVC (254NM) high intensity ultra-violet light and no evidence of repair or modification was detected. Exceptional vase in that it is undamaged, no chips, no cracks, no scratches to glaze. A couple of rub marks show under bright light but are not visible when viewed. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process including glaze misses and glaze pops. Dimensions are below.
