Measures about 8 1/2 tall. Thomas Gotham worked for Danish immigrant and Seattle tycoon Maritz Thomsen (West Coast Porcelain Manufacturers). In 1923 Gotham (WCPM) and Dirk van Erp were commissioned by San Francisco architect, Charles F. Strothoff to create at least one lamp in this scarce brownish copper crystalline glaze. For "dirk van erp gotham" for photos of that lamp.Because there are so few pieces in this brown glaze we believe the Strothoff commission was the one & only time this glaze was fired: and connecting it to the 1923 Gotham/Erp/Strothoff commission. Already an important piece by Gotham, with the added connections to Strothoff and Erp, logic suggests this vase found it's way up to Seattle via the company's millionaire owner, Moritz Thomsen.
