c. 1904 Arts & Crafts vase made by the Hampshire Pottery, Keene, New Hampshire. This vase stands 7 5/8" tall and has no chips or cracks, some variation to the glaze where the matte finish has worn over the years. The Hampshire Pottery was founded in 1844 by James Scollay Taft in Nelson, NH, and moved to Keene in 1871. While Grueby is often credited with developing the popular matte green glaze in 1887, Hampshire was actually the first to produce it in 1883. In 1904, Cadmon Robertson joined the firm and designed the vase we offer here. His pieces are marked with the M in a circle mark--see photo--which he used as a tribute to his wife, Emoretta. The Hampshire pottery ceased production in 1923, and it output is highly prized for its shapes, forms, and glazes, the matte green being the most popular.
