Design:  #879  Potpourri

Date Designed:  1911

Designer:  unknown

Description:  Plain small pot, with lid formed from flower petals. One example is what some collectors call Tobacco Brown glaze; the other Copenhagen Blue advertised by VBPCo in 1916.

Dimensions:  4 1/2″ height to top of lid.

Other:  This is the only piece of which we are aware – never to have the Van Briggle trademark Double-A.  It has been surmised by previous collectors that this potpourri was designed for perhaps a sorority at Colo. College; and carried instead, one of their markings on the bottom of each piece.  No proof of that theory exists.

Collection:  Private
