Design #174

Design:  #174

Date Designed:  1903

Designer:  unknown

Description:  Stylized leaves running the length of the vase.  Multi-colored glaze showing dark green on the vase as well as coating the bottom.  Light over sprays of lighter green, red and yellow.  A striking example of a multi-colored glaze!  Bottom markings include the Double-A and date of 1904.  Impressed Design #174 on the left edge.  Roman Numeral V indicates the type of clay.

Dimensions:  12″ height

Other:  The majority of designs from 1900 until his death on 7-4-1904, were created by Artus Van Briggle.  The last design credited to him was Design #247; so it is very likely that he was the overseer in the making of this extraordinary example!

Collection:  Private
