Design #48

 

Design #48C

Date Designed:  1902

Designer:  Artus Van Briggle

Description:  The vase is a bottle-shape in a beautiful light green glaze, with an orange peel texture.  The bottom markings are the Double-A and VAN BRIGGLE, in the handwriting attributed to Anne Gregory Van Briggle; with design #48 and size “C” impressed.    The  “C” after design #48, indicates that this is the middle size of the design.  Larger sizes would have been #48B and #48A, with smaller sizes #48 D and #48 E.  There is no date inscribed; however, is most likely late 1904, after Artus died, to early 1907  prior to the use of the late 1907 to early 1912 (07-12) marking pattern.

Dimensions:   8.75″ height, 4″ width at base

Other:  “H” appears to be written in ink of the base of the vase.
