Here is a whimsical modern stoneware piece from David Gil at Bennington Potters in Vermont. It is from the 1960's. 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.


This is the #1365 B cup and the #1365C saucer in what has been called the vertebral shape. It stands 3 1/3 inches tall when the cup is on the saucer and is in excellent shape with no chips, cracks or structural damage. This coffee cups and saucer is ready to be used for your next retro inspired dinner party. Imagine bringing your coffee to the table in this stylish and graceful vessel.


The shape was designed by David Gil himself in 1946/47 while he was still at Alfred University as an attempt to make a more efficient cup, in terms of heat loss, while maintaining a balanced feel when being used.

It is part of what is being called the Old Bennington line whose pieces are all numbered 1635 with a letter after the number.  It was Bennington Potters first full dinnerware line.  It is thought that after the Yusuke Aida Classic Line (whose over 40 shapes all bear numbers in the 1620 - 1688 range) was put into production after his arrival in 1961 that the Old Bennington Line was not expanded. Research continues.


David Gil and his work were featured in the Winter 1961 issue of Vermont Life.



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.

In 1951, Jane and Gordon Martz joined the firm. 


According to Brochure #35 I have in my possession, they state that "stoneware is our specialty. The forms are simple, designed to be usable and retain the feeling of clay.  The ware is hard, durable and subtle in color.  Handcrafting is important -- all pieces are glazed and decorated by hand."  They also produced all the solid walnut lamp fittings, plus walmut framer and legs or bases for the stoneware top tables.


This 8 1/4 inch tall tapered vase has a paper Marshall Studios label with the number typed in black ink M125-30.  According to page 3 of the #35 brochure, the first number stands for the shape number and the second number is the glaze number. In this case, the glaze is their "dark brown" glaze.  The glaze has a textured appearance to it with speckles of different shades of brown in it.


The piece is in excellent condition.

Based in Montelupo, Tuscany, Bitossi exported pieces from Italy under both the Raymor and Rosenthal Netter labels.


This vase carries a rectangular paper Rosenthal-Netter label. The name Rosenthal-Netter is white on a black rectangle within the label which also states CREATED IN ITALY FOR.  There is also an impressed ITALY into the bottom of the glazed bottom vase, along with the numbers 69/3.  It is in excellent condition.


The pattern was created by creating small depressions in the body of the piece before firing, along with the sgrafitto technique of incising the lines forming the outlines of the paisely motifs.  The red clay base body is glazed in a harvest gold color with accent colors of pumpkin orange and avocado green. So Midcentury Modern! So Eames era! So fifites and sixites!!

New, Mint, with gift box.  These funky and highly collectibles mixing bowls were sold as a set in three sizes. They were made in Dallas, Texas by the Texas Ware Plastics & Manufacturing Company and are so marked in embossed letters on the bottom of each bowl. 


This is the Texas Ware #118 light green speckled mixing bowl in very good vintage condition. Its main shade is a light almost celadon green with chunky inclusions of teal green, chocolate brown, white, turquoise, and chartreuse. It has normal vintage wear of some light knife marks in its center but retains 80 percent of the original interior glossy finish. Gorgeous glossy finish on the outside. FREE of chips, cracks, burns OR discoloration. You will NOT be disappointed!!


Background on the line:


The largest bowl, the #125 measures 11 1/4 inches across and stands 5 1/4 inches tall. The middle bowl #118 measures 9 3/4 inches across and stands 4 1/2 inches tall. The smallest bowl #111 measures 8 inches across and stands 4 inches tall.


Recently one has seen a Texas Ware vintage speckled Melmac bowl on the counter of Rachael Ray's TV kitchen. In fact, in late 2007, Food Network is now having produced and marketing a "Garbage Bowl" in a deep pumpkin color under the Rachael Ray name.  This is a striking Fratelli Fanciulacci Italy vase using the very popular sgrafitto technique popular in the 1950s.  This vase most likely was part of the Raymor line of imported Italian pottery and ceramics.


It stands 10 5/8 inches tall and is 4 1/4 inches wide at the base.  The heavy red base clay is glazed in a whitish tan glaze.  Using sgrafitto incising, the decorator created a large Egyptian figure carrying two pots.  There are also three cartouches on the back where the clay has been carved out and enamel dots have been added.  


The condition is very good considering this type of decoration is quite fragile.  There is a small flake at the rim that happened long ago.  I see no other damage. There are areas of the vase where the sgrafitti left some areas without the white underglaze but this is not damage.


The colors of the figure are yellow, orange, blue, red, green with a pink face, brown body and hair.  I have not seen many other Mid century Fratelli Fanciulacci pieces with this decoration.  The base also carries the initials VP.  It appears that the botte vase may have had a cork as there is still one inside the vase.

Precious Moments Inc. 2010 All Vinyl 9 inch Christmas Enchanted Cinderella doll, No. 3464, is from the beloved fairy tale character. Cinderella has pale blonde hair in a bun encircled by a red ribbon trimmed with gold braid, green painted tear-drop shaped eyes, red earrings, and a smiling mouth. Her festive holiday costume includes a long white satin ballgown with shiny gold and red bead trim, and a red overdress with gold edging, a white net petticoat edged with red lace, and gold shoes. This is a Linda Rick of The Doll Maker Disney design. New and mint with a gift box.  

 This Noritake Art Deco 7 3/4 inch wide tab handled plate features a very Art Deco sensibility.  The main design is placed at the edge of the plate, creating asymmetricality and giving movement to the piece.  That is aided  by the tendril like white curving lines which flow across the piece. In fact, these are areas from which the typical blue luster glaze has been removed, thus negative space.


The central blossom measures almost 2 1/2 inches by itself.  Black lines radiate out of the center.  The blue center is surrounded by give green circles, surrounded by give yellow petals, surrounded by six white and orange petals.  There are four other partial blossoms, suing orange, blue, pink, yellow, purple and green tones.


Gold rimmed, it is signed with the blue Cherry Blossom mark, which is a Noritake Company mark.  As I picked this piece up reasonably, so have I priced it.

Come read about this great club, the newsletter and consider joining them in their appreciation and pursuit of Noritake!  Shown on page 53 of Heacock's 1000 book as plate 251, this plain patterned clear glass toothpick holder was primarily produced for the souvenir trade. It is thought that this toothpick holder may have been produced until 1970.


This Madoline pattern toothpick holder was first produced by the Co-operative Flint Glass Company of Beaver Falls, PA in 1893.  It enjoyed a very long production life as it was perfectly suited to the promotional and souvenir market with its plain sides.


This toothpick holder stands 2 3/8 inches tall x 2 1/8 inches wide.  It has a shield of ruby stain which serves as a background for the inscription Ella 1925.  These had to be ordered ahead of time so this was probably to commemorate a special event.


The name of the pattern Madoline was for the young daughter of the Company's Secretary, Mr. Charles W. Klein.


It is in excellent vintage condition and ready to join your Co-operative Glass, toothpick holder or ruby-stained Early American Pattern Glass collection today.

 Here is a whimsical modern stoneware piece from David Gil at Bennington Potters in Vermont, which dates pre-1960 as that is the year they starting marking their pieces with shape numbers but not including the original Cooperative Design name in the mark. This plate carries the number 1240.  It is the same shape as pieces I own which carry the original Raymor line label. This 6 1/4 inch round x 3/4 inch deep plate with a rough unglazed bottom has glazed sides at the rim and is signed with an early large version of the Cooperative Design Bennington Potters mark.


The piece features a very stylized and abstract design of four rows of colored dots in black ovals separated by black lines done in shades of pumpkin orange, teal, daffodil yellow and a purplish blue color on a glossy white glaze. The early version of this plate used a chartreuse color. This late version uses a pumpkin orange color. A great fun and funky piece in excellent condition.  Looks likes lots of olives ready for a retro vintage martini!


David Gil's work in Bennington Vermont started in 1948. It evolved into a co-operative of different art potters and used the mark Design Cooperative until around 1960. They are among the few American studio potteries that turned into production potteries in the midcentury.


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.

Annemarie Davidson learned her enameling craft first from the great Doris Hall (1907-2001) in Cambridge, MA in 1957. In California she continued her studies with Curtis Tann. Her combination of geometric and organic form in her designs culminated in her most celebrated abstract designs, her Jewel line which features pieces of glass used to create free-form organic shapes which she calls Jewels. She also uses a sgraffito technique, incising straight lines from the center of her plate with the sharp point of a dart. Now in her late 80s, she no longer produces work today as of 2010 I have been told.


This 7 inch plate, most likely from the 1961-1962 time period, is a good example of an earlier Ghostline piece. This plate features 3 large turquoise blue jewels and 6 smaller cobalt blue jewels, all symmetrically arranged, yet asymmetrically placed on the plate as the whole design is off center. The lines are under the Jewels. A prominent Palm Springs CA dealer James Elliot-Bishop on his website has named this pattern as Ghostline.


The back of the plate still has the three large brown felt pads, the full gold paper label and is signed with her charcteristic AD interwined intiail. Her paper label reads Annemarie Davidson handcrafted enamels Sierra Madre California. Every piece was handcrafted by her alone, from start to finish. There are two tiny areas of some enamel loss to the rim.They are hard to see. One has to look hard to find them. It is in good vintage but not excellent condition, but it sure still looks great on a wall!


The work of Annemarie Davidson was included in the seminal exhibit titled Painting with Fire which opened in Jan 2007 at the Long Beach Museum of Art. She was one of 30 enamelists included with a one page entry on her life and work. Her page is page 266 of the catalogue.  David Gil Coop Design #1202 7 inch teardrop Musician in very early glossy white glaze, with the COOP Man/hand logo partially visible still at the top AND the rectangular Cooperative Design Bennington Vermont mark as well as .99 in black ink. It does not have the rough unglazed rim of the earliest pieces thus I am fairly confident this is a slightly later piece circa 1960. In 1960 most pieces added the words  Bennington Potters to the incised mark.  I have other designs in this teardrop series which carry the Raymor label. 


I recently purchased the same design in white glaze, making it easier to see that the instrument is a clarnet.It is in excellent shape.


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.


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.  Produced by Vermont Mid-Century studio potter Stanley Ballard (1917-1960), a student of Glidden Parker at Alfred University in the 1940s who worked in the Burlington area, this is one of the scarce figural pieces made by Ballard.


This cute figural elephant bank stands 5 inches tall and is 5 inches wide across the back.  The glaze is a very early foamy white glaze over the early chocolate brown underglaze. Strongly modeled, this bank features a circle on the bottom where one would need to break it to get to the saved money.  Also, on the bottom one sees the early inscribed S. Ballard signature and the word Vermont.  I think this was made in the 1945-1946 time period. It is one of the earliest with the word VERMONT on it. Later pieces had the word Vermont as part of the molded signature but this VERMONT is hand inscribed.


I know of only 5 of these, one of which was done in a yellow glaze and is owned by Ballard's niece.  


A great example of modeling and glazing, this is a prime example of Stanley Ballard's work.  Tom Tierney's 1999 Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Paper Dolls by Dover Publishing is a tribute to a remarkable woman. The booklet from includes 7 lifelike dolls of the former First Lady as a child, debutante, White House hostess, young widow, and wife of Aristotle Onassis. Also included are a doll of John F. Kennedy and Onassis. Accompanying the dolls are 27 detailed costumes including her wedding dress, tailored suits and dresses, evening gowns, and casual ensembles. New.

It contains a paper doll and 31 costumes to cut out with notes about the charity auction and outfits. Shortly before her untimely death, Princess Diana donated proceeds from the sales of many of her stunning evening dresses to charity.

New, mint.  Charlotte Whatley's Alice in Wonderland Paper Dolls: Through an All New Looking Glass uses costumes similar to the Disney Tim Burton release in 2010. There's 32 pages containing the 16 characters and costume changes including the older Alice, the Mad Hatter, Red and White Queens, rabbit, and various other characters from Lewis Carrol's books with a modern twist. Prepare to fall down the rabbit hole and plunge through the looking glass again — Alice is getting edgy with this modern paper-doll interpretation. Replete with stunningly original costumes and accessories, these 16 dolls crackle with steampunk style, a creative combination of science fiction, fantasy, and Victorian-and Edwardian-era fashions. This is a vibrant re-imagining of the classic story. Paper dolls and costumes are to be cut out, and may be too detailed for a young child. In color. New, mint.

 Done by Lincoln Vermont potter Marcy Mayforth, this is a 1988 dated 10 1/2 inch wide x 4 3/4 inch deep mixing bowl. The design is done in the sgraffito technique, then filled in as in an enamel piece. There are five light and dark blue hanging hearts with the leaves forming a band around the top of the outside neck on the piece, which is signed Mayforth 88 on the bottom. It is in excellent shape. It is a big and practical piece of Vermont Art Pottery by a well-known and well-respected Vermont potter.


Add it to your Vermont Art Pottery or American Studio Pottery collection 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 the post-1960 time period when Gil began to use the words Bennington Potters on pieces after having used a transition mark which included both the words Design Cooperative and Bennington Vermont.


This fluted 9 5/8 inch diameter plate was advertised in the 1964 catalogue as B 1654, an ashtray which could also be hung on the wall as a plaque as it had a built-in wire on the back. This piece is shown in the 1964 catalogue as and is titled there "La Belle Chat". Its original 1964 price was $5.00.


It  features one of the harder to find members of his Animal Line, a tiger.  Done in an abstract stylized manner, this big cat in molded in relief and is glazed in green, but not too precisely. 


The back of the plate/plaque has a wire hanger which was embedded in the pottery.  It is signed 1654 and has the spark mark on the forearm.  I would guess it is from the 1960-1962 period. It is in excellent condition.
