So let's put all of our cards on the table regarding this antique Van Briggle Pottery vase. It didn't take Dave Rago to see that it is a special piece.
I was #10 in line and #1 grabbed it first. He walked around with it for a bit while I telepathically told him "put it back". Obviously, he did and the power of positive thinking was reinforced (not the first time it has worked). In my reference, this vase is shown as shape #797. With leaves and a dark matte blue glaze, it has mulberry highlights.Measuring 9" tall and 6.5" wide, it is dated "1914" with the logo. The glaze is thick and organic. The only condition issue I see are some small white chalky spots here and there. It could be the result of contact long ago with tiny paint droplets but I didn't try too hard to clean them.
There are no chips, cracks or repairs. The only crazing I see is on the base. I've done my research and have seen recent sales. You send me an offer north of a grand and I'm sending you a vase.
