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. Van Briggle produced many items that hearken back to nature and this is no exception.
This particular bowl has a repeating bee that surrounds the shoulder of the bowl. The mulberry color is the perfect touch to this wonderful bowl. Outstanding frog flower frog insert. Wonderful crisp mold with perfect mulberry color. Detail is exceptional and is the perfect piece to complete your collection. This is an older bowl as well as the frog flower frog.
Exceptional bowl in that it is undamaged, no chips, no cracks, no scratches to glaze. No Crazing! I cannot detect any repairs or modifications to this bowl or insert. Possible minor penciling on body of bowl which appears as bright spots in the pictures. Displays well from all angles. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process including glaze misses and glaze pops. Please review the high resolution pictures because they are part of the description. The pictures are taken with a macro lens which show exceptional detail. Please review each picture carefully and contact with any questions.
