The Van Briggle Art Pottery is the oldest continuously operating art pottery in the United States, having been established in Colorado Springs, Colorado in 1901 by Artus and Anne Van Briggle. Artus had a significant impact on the Art Nouveau movement in the United States, and his pottery is foundational to American Art Pottery. The Art Nouveau style favored by its founders continues to influence the pottery's designs. Artus Van Briggle settled in Colorado Springs in 1899 after establishing himself as a notable artist with the Rookwood Pottery of Ohio.

With Anne Louise (née Gregory), his new wife, Artus began exploring the Art Nouveau style in their pottery creations, drawing awards and accolades from the American and European art communities. Although he was a talented painter who had displayed and won awards in Europe, from 1899 until his death Artus devoted himself almost exclusively to the craft and art of pottery. Van Briggle's Art Nouveau designs and distinctive matte glazes were awarded high honors from prestigious sources, including the Paris Salon, the Saint Louis Exposition, the Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition, and the American Arts and Crafts Exhibition in Boston. The Van Briggle Pottery Studio closed in spring 2012.

Van Briggle vase in the recognizable mulberry glaze. The flowering onion bulbs surround the entire vase. Unusual glaze treatment with mulberry and purple/blue hues. Cute smaller piece sure to please. Wonderful execution of this design which was produced between the 1940's - 60's. Exceptional piece for any collection. Perfect from all angles.

Exceptional vase in that it is undamaged, no chips, no cracks, no scratches to glaze, Very very light, undetectable crazing. May have very minor penciling. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process. I cannot detect any evidence of repair or modification.Please review the high resolution pictures because they are part of the description.
