Design #324

 

Design:  #324

Date Designed:  1905

Designer:  unknown

Description:   A beautiful green, slightly mottled glaze covering a repeating floral trillium and leaf design encircling the vase.  The glaze also covers the bottom of the piece.  Bottom markings include the Double-A, Van Briggle, date of 1906 and an encircled #2 (possibly an etcher mark) all in the handwriting attributed to Anne Gregory Van Briggle; as well as the Design #324 impressed in the clay.

Dimensions:  Height 5 1/2″ & Diameter 4″

Other:  While researching in 2008, this design drawing was found in the original early 1900s etched records at VBPCo.  Another design has previously been attributed to #324; however, this photo depicts an example like the one in the original drawings, and is impressed with the Design #324.  The earlier designated #324 design may have been mismarked.
