Design #457

Design: #457

Date Designed: 1906

Designer: Possibly Ambrose Schlegel

Description: Plain design, with vase flaring out at the middle section, and then narrowing to a tall, flared rim. Color that was used during Artus’ time; then introduced again as Copenhagen Blue in 1916. Bottom markings include the Double-A, Van Briggle & date of 1906 all in the handwriting attributed to Anne Gregory Van Briggle; impressed Design #480. This does not resemble Design #480, and does match Design #457. Body of vase is covered in an orange peel glaze, and there is a rim repair.

Dimensions: Height 6″, Width at center 5″

Other: J. Emma Kinkead attributed all the “plain shapes” to Ambrose Schlegel during the period following Artus’ death on 7-4-1904 and until Anne Gregory Van Briggle began designing again.

There have been several documented “mistakes” with incised Design numbers, and also later hand-written Design numbers.
