Here is a really nice and early Van Briggle Pottery leaf vase in red clay with a matte green curdled and thinning glaze. Red clay was only used in 1905, 06, and 07 and makes for beautiful highlighting where the glaze thins over the relief design. It is number 495 in the shape book, designed in 1906, and called "Spade-shaped leaves". It is in great condition with no chips, cracks, firing flaws, or repairs. It measures 4 1/4 inches tall and 4 5/8 inches in diameter at the base.
Marks include the firm's double AA box mark, and a little glaze ground off to reveal the date, 1907. A great glaze on an early, dated vase from the famous Colorado Springs art pottery.
