The Teco pottery line was introduced in 1902. The pottery shapes derived from line and color rather than elaborate decoration. While most of the 500 shapes created by 1911 were the product of Gates' efforts, many of the remaining Teco designs were the work of several Chicago architects that were involved in the Prairie School style as expressed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The smooth, micro-crystalline, matte "Teco Green" glaze of Teco Art Pottery was developed independently and wasn't an attempt to copy the famous Grueby green.
Here we have an excellent example of a 4 1/2 inch tall Teco Vase shape 52 which was designed by W. D. Gates. This piece exhibits the typical charcoaling and light spots that we have come to expect from original Teco Pottery. Outstanding arts and crafts color and form!
Exceptional vase in that it has no chips, no cracks, no scratches to glaze, no crazing. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process. The white spots are studio light reflections.
All pictures are original and un-edited. Authentic antique Teco Pottery. Height : 4 1/2", Base: 3", Rim: 1 1/2" ID 2377
