Lavender Shades

LAVENDERS

Early Van Briggle literature recorded both Light & Dark shades of Lavender. More shades than just light & dark lavender were produced, as shown. There is no early literature with color samples to show exact glaze names.

The 2004 butterfly bowl bears a glaze resemblance in glaze colors to the 1916, except the 1916 has the gray and purple glazes divided horizontally on both sides of this crocus vase.
