This Van Briggle vase stands 7.5" high by 4" in diameter. It has a bulb-like form, with inverted leaf forms cloaking the base, and loosely arranged blossom petals, which present like Mistletoe, adorning the rim collar, a great Arts & Crafts design. It is glazed in a nice early Van Briggle glaze in a pale yellow blushed with hints of chartreuse in a nice glaze combination. The glaze slides to a thick drip at the base edges. The interior is a deep greenish black glaze. This vase, shape #692 is a design by Anne Gregory Van Briggle in 1907/1908. Oddly, it is unmarked, but guaranteed to be vintage Van Briggle. We conferred with Kathy Honea, author of 'Van Briggle Notes' about the lack of a mark, and she said it is simply human error, and remarked that there are unmarked pieces in collections, so while it is likely pretty scarce, unmarked pieces do surface from time to time. It is in factory mint condition, with some factory glaze nuances, including bubbles, crazing and clay separations on the base edge, which do not go through to the interior. This early Van Briggle vessel, with an awesome glaze presents quite handsomely!
