As can be seen, we have an awesome example of mid-period Fulper pottery in this footed consul bowl. On the bottom is a raised vertical trademark which would date this bowl between the years 1916 and 1922. This would be a transitional time period between the arts and crafts/deco era. The OD measures 11 1/4 inches across, 3 3/4 inches tall, and a base OD of 4 inches across. A couple of the pictures reveal how thick this glaze was originally applied on this piece, bumps circle the bottom foot where the glaze formed drips during firing. I have cleaned this bowl so there is absolutely no residue whatsoever. There are no repairs, scratches or major damage visible. A very minor clamshell glaze flake is visible on the interior rim of the bowl, approximately 1/8” across. It is very minor and IMHO a non issue. Also on the bottom pedestal there are two areas to mention: the first is a shallow what appears to be a chip however the glaze shows no chips or damage; I believe this is a manufacture flaw. I viewed this under magnification and can see no sharpness where the glaze comes to the edge of this flaw. The other issue appears to be a chip on the inside of the bottom pedestal rim but again I question whether this might have been a tool mark when this piece was made. It could be a chip because there is sharpness but I don’t know. Neither one of these flaws in anyway detract from the beauty of this piece. They also do not affect the integrity of the bowl. The bowl rings like a bell, therefore suggesting there are no hidden hairline cracks. I will also mention that the glaze has pinpoint popped bubbles scattered around the outside of the bowl, not very many or concentrated in one area. Please enjoy the pictures showing various angles.
