A fine example of a Van Briggle art pottery mulberry vase, hand incised on base “Van Briggle, Colo. Spgs” in very good overall condition, with some minor surface rubs and imperfections. Van Briggle pottery has been made continuously since 1901 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. It was founded by Artus Van Briggle. Before moving to Colorado for health reasons in 1899, Van Briggle was a major decorator for Rookwood Pottery in Ohio. The Van Briggle Pottery Company built its success on soft dull (matte) glazes. A great Arts & Crafts period piece, probably dating to the 1920’s. Dimensions: Approximately 6” h x 5 ½” in diameter, with a 3 ½” diameter top rim or lip.
