Measuring 16 inches long  x 7 1/4 inches wide with a cutting surface of 7 inches wide, this cool and funky cheese board retains it original knife which fits exactly into the opening of the board. The original enamel square is in excellent condition, though it could use to be reglued to the  board. 


The design is pure Briard, with its modernistic abstract stylized pineapple, strawberries and bowl. Great colors of rust, yellow, brown. blue and gold. I believe this pattern is a variation of his Ambrosia pattern which can be seen on page. 28 of the Pina Designed & Signed book.  The same walnut cheese server can be seen on page 88 top of the page.

Add it to your Mid-Century art pottery collection today.  Produced by Vermont Mid-Century studio potter Stanley Ballard, a student of Glidden Parker at Alfred University in the 1940s who worked in the Burlington area, this unusual decorated #19 vase carried the standard incised Ballard signature and the original price in pencil of $2.50. 

 

It measures 5 1/2" tall.  The design on the front of the vase is of mountains and pine trees done in a dark blue glaze. The rim of the vase has also been traced over in the same blue glaze color, giving it an almost violet effect. The back is plain. This is the only item I have yet seen with this decoration. Excellent condition  

Terry Crider started his glasswork in 1976. He is self taught. This studio glass artist has put out a limited amount of work over the past 31 years. He uses NO MOLDS and his only help has been his wife Donna. I had an email from Terry and Donna a few years ago stating that he doesn't think it would be fair to the collectors to make any of the same things again. They have decided, if they do make glass again, they are not going to make anything that they have made in the past. He made glass part time from 1988-2000. In 2005, he began again to produce a limited amount of glass. He's a great artist with VERY few early pieces out there. This toothpick is in mint condition and is signed and dated 1980 on the base. 

 

This Crider 1980 JIP red white blue threaded  is hand blown cased glass - white with blue feathering on the outside and a pretty deep red on the inside. Then, to add to its beauty, it is threaded with very fine red threads around the body of the glass. It's hard to imagine the amount of work that went into this beautiful, hand made toothpick holder. 

 

This little toothpick holder stands about 3" high at its highest point. It is a fantastic piece of art! It is in perfect condition.  This Consolidated blue opaque Pine Cone salt shaker has its original top and measures 3 1/4" tall to tip of top.  A well know and very collectable pattern from Consolidated's early period. An example of the splended color created by Nicolas Kopp when he worked there. Excellent condition. No damage.

Produced by Vermont Mid-Century studio potter Stanley Ballard, a student of Glidden Parker at Alfred University in the 1940s who worked in the Burlington area,  this  3 5/8 inch square dish is a very early studio piece as it carries no shape number and was most likely hand formed. It has a very heavily mottled white glaze over a chocolate brown underglaze and sloping sides. A great example of Ballard's glaze and early shape. It is in excellent condition.  Produced by Vermont Mid-Century studio potter Stanley Ballard, a student of Glidden Parker at Alfred University in the 1940s who worked in the Burlington area, this all black #41 vase stands 3 1/2" tall x 3" wide.

It is from the 1960s, boy is it!! 


 

 

It measures 11 1/2' across at its widest point and has a blended agate glaze with yellow/black highlights on a pumpkin orange color. Would make a great bonbon dish in the fall!

It's a fun and funky way to 'interact with time' on a daily basis as it is necessary to turn it over to reveal the next day's date.  This one features a scene of a Scottish bagpiper and was probably purhased in Scotland as a trip souvenir. Both sides have an identical scene<p> 

 

Nice useful little item, measures over 3' high, and made of chrome.Day, Date and month are changed by turning top over. In very good condition.

This is a great pattern in Noritake design. It is called 'speed line' by Noritake collectors. What is also desirable about this 2 cut-out tab handled bowl is the use of gold luster on the speed lines in addition to the black and white used. Black and gold leaves surround a high abstracted blue flower on one side of the asymmetrically arranged design. Pure Art Deco Noritake genius carrying a red wreath mark from the 1925-1931 period.

Originally, it had four rubber knob feet so it can sit on a counter or a hanger to be used as a wall plaque. It still has its hanger but is missing the rubber ball feet. It is an earlier design by the late David Gil who started Bennington Potters as a design collaborative in 1948.  I found this Fiesta medium green plate in a stack of Harlequin plates while shopping. Go figure! The color is great but there is an imperfection under the glaze in one area. This was in the original firing as the area is glazed over. The area is about one inch long. This plate was also used, so it is not in 'mint' or excellent condition, but in good condition. But it's medium green!!  No chips, cracks or flakes to plate. Buy it and use it. It would make a great holiday plate for cookies! I bought it very reasonable so, the price I am selling it at is reasonable, so bring it home!  This piece of Revere is from the line designed by Lurelle Guild. It measures 8 3/4 inches in diameter. Notice the ends of the handle. He used the same motif on images designed for the Chase company. You can see the 'Revere' 'Rome' mark in the last photo. Excellent condition. A beautiful and useful piece.

This Ballard vase is decorated with an abstract design of deep blue and black lines within a square. Marked #70 on the bottom, it is a late piece to the line I feel. There is a tiny flake on the one corner of the top rim. This is the only piece I have seen with this decoration.  This Royal Haeger #138 Ebony Cascade 1954 ashtray has 4 rests and is fully signed on the bottom. Great 'V' shaped center which adds to the geometric look. Part of the 'new' Cascade glazes Haeger debuted as part of their 1954 line.  Excellent condition. Would look stunning on a blond wood coffee table.  This Royal Haeger #2001 red/black 9' wild ashtray has a very 1960s rec room or den feel to it. Finished in a bold matte red glaze, this 5 rest ashtray would look great next to a retro vase from the Mid Century.  In great condition  Here is a whimsical modern stoneware piece from the late David Gil at Bennington Potters in Vermont. started by David Gil in 1948. It was made during the 1948-1960 time period when Gil used only the words Design Cooperative, or in this case only the letters CO OP around the hand mark AND david gil BENNINGTON.


David Gil Coop Design 7 inch teardrop bass playing man in teal glaze, with the COOP Man/hand logo. rough unglazed rim. Full Raymor paper label on bottom which states: MODERN in the Tradition of Good Taste: Raymor, designed by David Gil for Cooperative Design. Excellent condition.


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.

Ballard pottery #21 3' footed planter wild glaze! It is signed 21 and has the incised S.Ballard Vermont mark. Great glaze on this footed pedestal piece, almost a Rockingham glaze. Has the original Ballard paper label as well.  Excellent condition  David Gil Coop Design 6 1/8 inch round x 13/16 inch  deep plate with rough unglazed bottom, signed with incised signature 'David Gil' and 'bennington'.  This mark dates pre-1960. There is little speckling in the glaze on the front of the plate. The sides of the plate are glazed as is the rim of the plate but the mark is from the middle period of the 1240 plate series, so I am putting this into the late middle period closer to 1960. 


The pattern on this plate is a very abstract one, depicting a Bull or Steer with horns. I have nicknamed this piece Lascaux Bull as it reminds me of the cave paintings there. The body is done in a simple line technique of blue and black. The eye is turquoise blue and there are two brown spots on the side of the animal. 


There are no hints of turquoise color in the  brown dots as seen on the early version of this design.  Excellent condition.


On the back of this plate, the incised signature is not as clear as on the early period plates. It looks like a white glaze was brushed over the bottom as one can see brush marks. 


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.
