Description

The Van Briggle Art Pottery is the oldest continuously operating art pottery in the United States, having been established in Colorado Springs, Colorado in 1901 by Artus and Anne Van Briggle. Artus had a significant impact on the Art Nouveau movement in the United States, and his pottery is foundational to American Art Pottery. The Art Nouveau style favored by its founders continues to influence the pottery's designs. Artus Van Briggle settled in Colorado Springs in 1899 after establishing himself as a notable artist with the Rookwood Pottery of Ohio.

With Anne Louise (née Gregory), his new wife, Artus began exploring the Art Nouveau style in their pottery creations, drawing awards and accolades from the American and European art communities. Although he was a talented painter who had displayed and won awards in Europe, from 1899 until his death Artus devoted himself almost exclusively to the craft and art of pottery. Van Briggle's Art Nouveau designs and distinctive matte glazes were awarded high honors from prestigious sources, including the Paris Salon, the Saint Louis Exposition, the Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition, and the American Arts and Crafts Exhibition in Boston. The Van Briggle Pottery Studio closed in spring 2012.

Oustanding Van Briggle frog flower frog in the unusual mountain craig glaze (brown and green). Wonderful execution of this flower frog design. Great 3 little frogs on a flower frog/arranger. Perfect from all angles.

Exceptional flower frog in that it is undamaged, no chips, no cracks, no scratches to glaze, No crazing. I cannot detect any repairs or modifications on this piece. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process.

The pictures are original and un-retouched.

Dimensions are below.

Authentic. Marked with Van Briggle symbol.
