Sphinx Bookends!

Advertisement 1916 or after: Orange & Copenhagen intro. in 1916

Another advertisement in our book states the glazes of Orange, Copenhagen Blue & Green introduced in 1916.

I have not seen Sphinx Bookends except in this advertisement. No design #. Dragonfly 12″ bowl is #912D; 8″ bowl is 903D. Vase, #838, is shown upside down! Acorn Bowl is design #670. Note the prices were not inexpensive for the 1916 period.

Colors stated as available: Rose-Pink, Turquoise Blue, Green, Orange and Copenhagen Blue. We have seen 1 examples of the #688 in Orange glaze in our collections.
