Turquoise Van Briggle Vase - Hand Thrown Original
This is a beautiful vase manufactured by the Van Briggle Art Pottery Company. It is actually a hand thrown piece - where most of there current day pieces are molded. This piece is turquoise in color (I believe Van Briggle references it as Ming Blue) and it gets more blue toward the top. You can see the "ribs" or rings that occured when this vase was hand thrown on the wheel. It also has hand applied flowers and scrolls on 2 sides. It is marked "Van Briggle Original Co Sp Co" on the bottom. It is also marked DLH and K-100. I believe the DLH is the mark of Deonne Holt, who was a finisher for Van Briggle from 1979-85. I'm not sure what the K-100 represents as Van Briggle does not usually put model numbers on their pieces. This piece still has the original $350.00 price tag on the bottom. It is in excellent like-new condition with no damage. It measures 7" tall, has a 6" top diameter and a 3.25" base diameter.
