This is a striking Bitossi Italy vase using the very popular orange, yellow, brown, and chartreuse colors in the 1950s-1960s from Bitossi. The vase stands 8 3/4 inches tall. This vase is part of the Rosenthal-Netter line of imported Italian pottery and ceramics as it is carries an original paper label.


The body of the vase is done in a subtle cream color glaze onto which concentric bands or rings of color have been painted, some thick, some pencil thin.  It seems that the Rosenthal-Netter line was a brighter toned line than the Raymor Line.  One sees a lot of yellows and oranges on the Rosenthal-Netter line.


The original paper Rosenthal-Netter black and white paper label carries the stock number 247/3-.  There are also three small green felt pads on the base. The vase is in excellent condition. 


Add it to your Rosenthal-Netter or Bitossi  collection. Go green! Save resources and purchase a piece of the past. Sturdy, dependable, it is ready for your home today.  This large bowl is decorated both on the outside and the inside with stylized fish in an abstract style. 

There are three fish on the inside and three on the outside. The bowl measures 9 1/2 inches across the top and stands 3 3/4 inches tall.  It is signed on the bottom with the signature of the potter, Bryant.

The color is seafoam, one of the four colors in which this line was produced by Morgantown circa 1951, but never marked. Excellent conditon. No chips, flakes or cracks. See a description of the items in this line illustrated and priced in second edition Kerr, p. 238-239.


This line can also be seen in the 2000 Keller and Ross book titled Russel Wright, Dinnerware, Pottery and More on pages 183-185. Though this line of Russel Wright glass designs may indeed be the easiest to find today, it is still relatively difficult to locate examples in excellent condition.  


I purchased these glasses very reasonably so I am able to offer them at a 50% discount from the prices listed in the Kerr book and well below the Keller/Ross price of $15-$18 each.

It is easy to drink from this creamy white porcelain mug because of its thick, round, smooth-lipped design.  The six ounces of coffee stay hot because of the superior construction.  Each genuine Victor coffee mug [Victor is imprinted on the bottom of each] weighs more than a pound and is made of the finest fired clay porcelain.  This excellent mug is virtually indestructible and remains the classic and easily recognized shape so sought after by collectors worldwide.

 

History will show that because of the Victor Insulator’s simple, yet immensely functional design, the Victor mug was imitated into extinction.  Mr. Nelson McKee, a fourth generation company employee, now Sales Manager of Victor Insulators, Inc. stated "We made the decision to no longer manufacture coffee mugs when it became apparent that people would rather pay a low price for inferior quality than a fair price for superior quality."


Each mug stands 3 1/4 inches high x 3 1/8 wide at the top rim. It is decorated with a dark green double band at the top and a matching stripe on the handle. Excellent condition.

Shown on page 163 of the new revised Mauzy 2004 Pyrex book, pattern was called Colonial Mist. A four bowl set can be seen on page 108. 


This is the largest bowl in the 4 bowl set.  The shape was referred to as a Cinderella bowl. Cinderella bowls were introduced in 1958 as an alternative to batter bowls. One could pour from either side. The price in Mauzy's book for a complete 4 bowl set is $55-75.  Usually the larger the bowl the more value when they are sold individually.  So, my price is very reasonable for this bowl. 


This deep blue Colonial Blue paint is in incredible condition  The white silkscreened flower band around the middle of the piece is also in excellent condition.  The inside has some wear on the sides where the other bowls in the set would have rubbed against it.  It is a bowl to buy and use or just display on a shelf as the exterior is in excellent vintage condition.

 The condition is excellent overall. The #401 is excellent. I purchased it of ebay. The #402 has some wear on it but only when held up to the light. The #403 is excellent. The hard to find $404 has inside knife wear and a wear to the outside but displays well. If you have a 50s kitchen, this set is for you. The price is reasonable especially as Mauzy prices the set in the $100-$120 range. Value of this iconic set will continue to rise I am sure. Add it to your Pyrex or kitchenware collection today. Shipping is $15 inside US and at least $20 internationally depending on which shipping service is chosen.  This pair of shakers was part of the Corelle Living Ware line produced by Corning and marketed to go along with the Pyrex lines so popular in the late 1950s to the 1970s.  Each shaker stands 4 1/2 inches tall and have a black plastic stopper that lets the salt and pepper slip out past the small openings in the bottom of the plastic stopper. Pretty ingenious I think!


The set is shown on page 153 of the 2004 3rd edition of the Mauzy Pyrex Book. It is priced there for $8-10 for the pair. My price is at the bottom end of that range.

"Hand-crafted Pottery Since 1940

Owing to the abundance of ancient clay deposits in the region, Louisville has been a center of pottery-making for generations. Out of this proud tradition, Mary Alice Hadley established one of Louisville’s most iconic and well-known potteries. The story begins in the early 1900’s. Mary Alice Hadley was born into a family of clay tile makers where her knowledge of working with clay first developed. Exhibiting an early interest in art and design, she ultimately became a widely recognized painter, winning numerous awards and acclaim from New York to Los Angeles.


By the late 1930’s Mary Alice Hadley began melding her artistic talent with her knowledge of clay ware. In 1939, Mrs. Hadley made dishes for her houseboat on the Ohio River. The creative result was a set of a custom dishes that caused such a stir among her friends and acquaintances that the idea for a business was born. Supplying those early requests provided wide circulation for her hand-crafted pottery and soon orders began to arrive from across the country. With the help of her husband, George, the Hadley Pottery Company was formed early in 1940.


In 1944, George Hadley purchased a building in the Butchertown area of Louisville as a birthday present for Mary Alice. The building, constructed in 1848, has been home to a wool mill, a candle factory and a cordage mill and for 65 years has served as the production location, factory salesroom and offices of Hadley Pottery Company. Many pieces of original art created by Mary Alice Hadley are still on display at the historic structure on Story Avenue, including several wall murals all hand-painted by Mary Alice herself.


The business prospered, attracting collectors from across the nation and around the world. The warm and whimsical designs that Mary Alice Hadley created have attracted multitudes of fans over the last 70 years and are still finding their way into the hearts of new Hadley Pottery enthusiasts every day. She worked at the Pottery until her death in 1965. George Hadley continued to run the business until it was sold in 1979 to Louisville natives, Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth W. Moore. In September 2009, new partners joined the Hadley Pottery ownership group, but operations remain largely the same as they were when the company was started. The creative inspiration that Mary Alice Hadley brought to the ware still lives today."


Each part of this set of four coasters carries the words A VERY HAPPY ANNIVERSARY around a design of a bow with 2 bells hanging from the bow.  Each is signed M.A. Hadley on the reverse.  I don't know if these coasters are vintage or contemporary. You be the judge. I do know they are listed in current inventory on the M. A. Hadley website at $9.75 each.  In addition, I am including this 8 3/4 inch custom message plate.  On the front it has the name DIAINE and on the back the date May 16, 1981 as well as the Hadley signature.  


My price for the group is well below that figure for the set of four.  Price is for the set.  Each piece of the set is in excellent condition.  Each of this set of 6 glasses stands 6 7/8 inches tall and is 2 1/8 inch wide at the mouth.  If you love horses, ponies, Art Deco, funky, Fifties, this set of tall iced tea glasses or zombies is for you.


Each tall glass holds 15 ounces. That's a good amount of Mint Julep, iced tea or lemonade.  Add a tray, a pitcher and get ready for the Kentucky Derby!  Would make a great gift for that girl or guy who loves horses!


Price is for the set.  There was a time in the early 1960s when we looked back to the Colonial Early Americana time for design inspiration.  Earth tones with designs of mushrooms (like the canister set made for Sears), owls, quail, Woodland creatures were one inspiration. Another was Early Americana. 


This Pyrex 401 5 1/2 inch wide bowl is the smallest of the classic 4 bowl mixing bowl set.  The design on this bowl is inspired by the stencil designs in early Colonial homes.  Corning titled this design Homestead.  The background of this bowl is from the Desert Dawn series. The blue design again harkens from the Colonial America use of stenciling to adorn walls.


This bowl is in excellent vintage condition. Don't send it through the dishwasher too many times. Use  wooden utensils if possible and you can add this piece of vintage American glass to your kitchen or home for use or display.

This vintage pattern was called Soreno and was made by the Anchor Hocking company from 1966-1970 when it was discontinued.  It is also known as the Pressed Bark design. It came in an avocado green, a deep amber, a light blue, and clear. It was made to match the harvest gold and avocado time period, which was late 1960s. 


In that respect it is a great example of American glass tied to a design period.  Though intended as an ashtray, you can repurpose it and use it for an appetizer tray, candy dish, or olive dish.

From 1937-1939 he was a classmate of Glidden Parker. He had his studio in Burlington Vermont from 1946 -1960 until his untimely tragic death in February 1960. 



Produced by Vermont Mid-Century studio potter Stanley Ballard who worked in the Burlington area , this Ballard syrup jug is done in his signature chocolate brown glaze which he uses as an underglaze on other pieces. The scene depicts a maple tree with a sap bucket on it with mountains in the background. So, here is an iconic scene by a talented Vermont potter. 


Not signed on the bottom, but one can see the exact same item shown as a Ballard product in the Summer 1953 Vermont Life 6 page article on Stanley Ballard.


The top opening measures 1 inch. I believe this was the earlier mold on this design as the later one is 7/8 inch at the top and stands a little shorter.  The sap bucket on the this the later mold is also a little narrower. 


On the back of this Ballard syrup jug you also have some hand-painted flowers. Quant I say.

Vermont Studio potter Stanley Ballard (1917-1960) graduated from Alfred University’s highly respected Ceramic Program in 1939, having studied there while these influential teachers were part of the faculty: Marion Fosdick, Charles Harder, Clarence Merritt, and C. Katherine Nelson.


This commercial 3 inch maple syrup jug was glazed in one of his solid color glazes which he used on some production pieces. 


The piece is signed simply 'Hand Made in Vermont', but is shown as a Ballard product in the Summer 1953 Vermont Life 6 page article on Stanley Ballard. Excellent condition. What is a bit unusual about this particular example is that the words GRADE A are also stamped on the bottom of the piece in a black ink stamp.


A great combo of Vermont product and Vermont Studio Art pottery from the Mid Century period.  David Gil was featured in the Winter 1961 issue of Vermont Life, having started Bennington Potters in 1948 in Bennington, VT right after WWII with his wife Gloria Gil. His early work carried his full name and the name Cooperative Design when he and other Alfred graduates designed work as a cooperative. After 1960-61, the pieces were marked Bennington Potters.  


This 8 inch tall x 6 inch diameter cylindrical shape vase is from his production period. The top is the most interesting features as it duplicates the asterisk shape he used as part of his trademark, representing the creative "spark" of the potter. This vase came in four sizes and in white, black, and cobalt blue. This high white glossy glaze is as modern today as when it was produced.It is signed with a shape number but it is difficult to read. My guess is that it is 1996.  


This vase might have been sold as a second at the pottery as it doesn't quite sit solidly on a flat surface.  It would look great filled with flowers.  This is the first example of this size vase in the Spark series I have seen.


It is in great shape and a very good example of Gil's design aesthetic. Add it to your MidCentury American Art pottery or Vermont Art Pottery collection today. A great piece of early American Studio Art pottery from a pre-eminent Mid Century designer.


In their 1964 catalogue, Gil described their creations as "Art Objects in the Practical Realm" - Museum Honored, Hand-crafted, Modestly Priced"  This vase is an early version of a vase done in a technique called by Lundberg Studios as encasement vases.  I have seen them also advertising as paperweight vases, but on the Lundberg Studios site, they are simply called crystal encasement vases.


Daniel Salazar started at what would be called Lundberg Studios in 1975.  This 4 3/4 inch tall vase is decorated with a vine and violets vase.  The inside of the piece is iridized which makes the encased flowers float on a gold color surface.  


The piece is correctly signed. On one side of the bottom it states Lundberg Studios 1981. On the other side is Daniel Salazar 11-23-81.  


A great example of early Lundberg Studos by a very collectible master glass craftsman.  Add it to your California Studio Glass collection today.  Measuring 5 inches square, this bowl by Mid-Century enamelist Harold Tischler clearly shows the influence of Edward Winter.  Like Winter, he studied at the Vienna Kunstgewerbeschule from 1927 to 1932 under such greats as Michael Powolny and Josef Hoffman.   In fact, It is Tischler who is credited with getting Edward Winter accepted into the school, according to the information on page 275 of the Painting with Fire exhibit companion catalog produced the the Long Beach Museum of Art, whose groundbreaking seminal exhibit opened in January 2007.


In 1935, Tischler visited Winter in Cleveland. During the visit he saw Winter's signature enameling method of immersing the metal in liquid enamel to achieve better coating than simply sifting powdered enamel on the surface. Tischler quickly also adopted this methold which accounts for the similarity in design between the two men's works.


His work was featured in the 1970 Edward Winter book called Enamel Painting Techniques. He died in 1993 at age 100. 


This piece featuresa yellow background. The center has an asymmetrical array of jewels in colors of red, blue, purple, pumpkin orange, and chartreuse on a pink groiund.  The sides have stripes or rays coming from the edge down into the center.  The whole plate was probably striped before the pink center and jewels were applied.  The back is counter-enameled in green and chocolate brown and is signed by incsing the words H. Tischler. It is in fair vintage condition. As often happens with enamel pieces with sharp corners, there is some wear to the back of the piece at the corners and 2-3 chips at the edge of the back. On the front, three of the corners have no damage and one has a slight loss of enamel.  Buy it in not perfect condition and add a piece of Harlold Tischler's work to your collection.

This glass produced by the Imperial Glass Company is designed by iconic American industrial designer Russel Wright.

Sturdy, dependable, dishwasher-friendly, it is ready for your kitchen table today.  Here is a whimsical modern stoneware piece from the late David Gil at Bennington Potters in Vermont. started by David Gil in 1948. It is from the late 1950s time period when Gil used a transition mark which included both the words Design Cooperative and Bennington Vermont and a large arm symbol. 


I recently learned that when Gil decided to mark his works with shape numbers, he started with the number 1300. However, if an earlier design was to remain in production, they marked it with a number starting with 1290. This explains the numbering and mark on the transition pieces.


They are among the few American studio potteries that turned into production potteries in the midcentury. It evolved from a co-operative of different art potters.  


After 1960, they made their bread and butter by making gorgeous modern styled dinnerware and accessories that were distributed throughout the US and sold in fine department stores.  In their 1964 catalogue, Gil described their creations as "Art Objects in the Practical Realm" - Museum Honored, Hand-crafted, Modestly Priced,"


This fun and funky owl plaque can be seen in the 1964 catalogue as shape #1504.  I believe this particular owl plaque is much earlier as the dimensions of the piece are larger than what is shown in the 1964 catalogue.  


This plaque uses the late 1950s turquoise/teal background glaze.  The highlighting on the owl itself is a dark chocolate borwn.   The back is stamped with a larger version of the Cooperative Design Bennington Vermont mark.  


It is in excellent condition and has the original wire hanger on the back for using it as a plaque.  This mug stands 3 1/4 inches tall and was made by the Federal Glass Company.  I love the slogan on both sides of the coffee mug.


Try It You'll Like It!


Who knows what if refers to, coffee, a restaurant?  It is signed with the Federal Glass F in a Shield Mark on the bottom along with the words Heat Proof USA.

Bennington by Gil started in 1948 . They are among the few American studio potteries that turned into production potteries in the midcentury. It evolved into a co-operative of different art potters. They made their bread and butter by making gorgeous modern styled dinnerware that was distributed throughout the US and sold in fine department stores but this is an earlier more studio inspired piece. In their 1964 catalogue, Gil described their creations as "Art Objects in the Practical Realm" - Museum Honored, Hand-crafted, Modestly Priced,"



David Gil, trained at Alfred University and profiled in the Winter 1961 issue of Vermont Life, started Bennington Potters in 1948 in Bennington, VT right after WWII. 


This diminutive version of the iconic double trigger mug stands 3 1/4 inches tall. This vase is glazed with a high gloss white glaze on the inside. The outside is done in a semi matte white. It dates from the 1960-1968 period when Gil only used the term Bennington Potters on his pieces.


According to yet to be authenticated information, the suggestion for the double trigger handle was given to David Gil by one Maurice A. Douglass, a resident of Bennington Vermont and a collector of early Norton Pottery. 


In the 1964 catalogue, there are 3 sizes of the double trigger mug shown including this small #1370 size. 


This beautifully deisgned and balanced 1370 trigger mug is in excellent condition. Add it to your Mid-century Bennington Potters or David Gil collection today.

Yona Lippen started her career as a Hedi Schoop decorator. She left to start her own business featuring the figurines so popular at the time which were called --- pretty ladies.  Yona's figurines featured add-ons  including ceramic bows, ribbons, and spaghetti spacking.  After the popularity of the film The King and I, she abandoned the ladies in favor of Siamese themes. She often decorated these pieces with gold or silver overglaze.  She closed her business in 1958.


This 8 inch long x 5 1/2 inch tall planter is typical of that period of design.  It is glazed on the inside and the outside in a deep forest green.

This mug is marked with the number 34 indicating that is was made in 1934. 


This 3 1/2 inch tall coffee mug may seem skimpy by today's Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts standards, but at the time it was made in the 1920-1950 period, this was a standard size for a coffee mug.  It features a two bands of green, one thicker one near the rim and another band of two thinner green lines a little further down the body. 


The mug is in excellent vintage condition. The bottom is glazed whereas the edge of the bottom rim is unglazed.  There is some scuffing at the very bottom of the outside bottom of the mug. I will leave the deep cleaning to you.  


I would just fill in with java and enjoy!

Here is a whimsical modern stoneware piece from master potter David Gil at Bennington Potters in Bennington, Vermont. It dates around the year 1960 but before 1962 as it carries both a shape number and the words Bennington Potters and Cooperative Design. It is a later version of this design as the side of the piece is also glazed. The earlier versions of this piece had the side unglazed and trimmed in a orange tint.


It is the same shape as pieces I own which carry the original Raymor line label. This 6 1/2 inch  diameter piece features a wild black outlined abstract bird with purple, pumpkin and yellow dots on its body with a teal eye. 


I recently learned that when Gil decided to mark his works with shape numbers, he started with the number 1300. However, if an earlier design was to remain in production, they marked it with a number starting with 1200. This explains the numbering and mark on the transition pieces, particularly this one marked with shape number #1240.


They are among the few American studio potteries that turned into production potteries in the midcentury. It evolved into a co-operative of different art potters. 


After 1960, they made their bread and butter by making gorgeous modern styled dinnerware that was distributed throughout the US and sold in fine department stores.


In their 1964 catalogue, Gil described their creations as Art Objects in the Practical Realm" - Museum Honored, Hand-crafted, Modestly Priced.


David Gil started producing work in Bennington Vermont in 1948. They are among the few American studio potteries that turned into production potteries in the midcentury. It evolved into a  co-operative of different art potters, then into the Bennington Potters company we have known since 1960 and still very much active today.  This is a striking Bitossi Italy vase using the very popular orange, yellow and chartreuse colors in the 1950s-1960s from Bitossi. The vase stands 5 3/4 inches tall. This vase is part of the Rosenthal-Netter line of imported Italian pottery and ceramics as it is carries an original paper label.


The body of the vase is done in a vibrant chartruse glaze onto which two highly stylized blossoms have been painted, one orange, one white.  It seems that the Rosenthal-Netter line was a brighter toned line than the Raymor Line.  One sees a lot of yellows and oranges on the Rosenthal-Netter line.


The original paper Rosenthal-Netter black and white paper label carries the stock number 245/2.  


The piece is in excellent condition. Add it to your Rosenthal-Netter or Bitossi  collection.  Made by well-known San Francisco artist Win Ng and signed with his name and San Francisco, this beautiful 4 3/8 inch wide low bowl is a masterpiece of enamel. A Chinese American gay artist, Win Ng (1936-1991) was the subject of a recent 2005 retrospective at the Chinese Historical Society of America.  


Win Ng worked in enamel early on in his career. His primary work was in ceramics and fine art. He later partnered with Taylor to create the well-loved and collectible series of Animal Orgy mugs as well as high end kitcheware which carried the Taylor Ng mark.


This particular bowl has a deep blue and gold flecked background onto which various sized jewels in shades of cobalt blue, pink, green and red.  What is unusual is that the red and blue jewels were fired as a second layer over the first, giving the piece incredible depth. The rim and the back was left in its original copper with no counter-enameling and carries his cursive Win Ng signature as well as the letter number combination B4. The piece is signed San Francisco as well, much like the way pioneer California enamelist Jade Snow Wong signed her pieces. There are some areas on the back of enamel loss due to rubbing, but the front is in excellent condition and is a good early example of Win Ng's career. Add it to your Mid Century enamel collection today.  Produced by the Morgantown Glass Company  in the period when they were known as the Morgantown Glass Guild which started in 1933, pair of 3 1/4 inch tall  7 oz. flat cocktails  in the Moss Green color.  This line in transparant colors started in the 1950s.


By 1958, it had been renamed the Decor line, which was the brainchild of J. Richard Haden who along with his brother Samuel K. took over the business from their father Joseph Haden.  In 1958, the first Decor by Morgantown" catalog was published.


However, when the Carbone Company of Boston, one of the major national Importers assumed the line as their own in the early  Sixties, the line became known as Crinkle. This line can be seen and is well presented on pages 214-215 of Jerry Gallagher's Handbook of Old Morgantown Glass (1995).


This pair of 7 oz flat cocktails is in the iconic Moss Green color.  They are in excellent condition and ready to join your Mid-century home as you serve lemonade or iced tea on the veranda or patio (such great mid century terms).
