The deeply incised mark and the dark base color of the clay seen on the back of the plate as well as the orange tinted rim place this plate into the early period for this 1240 shape series. Both the bottom and the bottom of the side rim are unglazed. 


The pattern of 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. In my 2013 interview with Gloria Gil, she stated that David Gil was inspired by the discovery of the Lascaux caves in France in 1940 and opened to the public in 1948, the same year David graduated from Alfred University and started Cooperative Designin Bennington Vermont.


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. What is interesting about the brown spots is that you can also see hints of the turquoise blue color coming through them. The glaze over this must be a type of semi-matte glaze as the colors are muted.


This is a hard to find variation of this early period 1240 shape.


In addition to the standard early period david gil bennington signature, it also shows the outline of the original Raymor paper label which was placed right over the bennington signature. Excellent condition.  It was part of the Raymor line. Many of these early period 1240 plates are still found with an intact Raymor label or the shadow of the sticker. Gloria Gil told me that Raymor approached them in 1953. Their association with Raymor last 20 years until 1973.


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.


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.  Prior to changing the name to Bennington Potters around 1960, David Gil's company was known as Cooperative Design. There, he and other Alfred designers fashioned all sorts of interesting Mid-Century items. Having trained at Alfred University, Gil came to Bennington in 1948. His designs are included in many Mid-Century exhibits and catalogues. 


This is the #1342 rimmed covered casserole with metal bail handle. It is done in an early brown glaze. It measures 10 1/4 inches across x 7 inches wide. It has a lid which features a metal handle which was formed into the pottery. . It would make a great  baking and/or serving dish as. It's a good-sized practical dish. It would look great with your McCobb or Eames buffet.


The casserole bottom is marked 1342. The lid is marked 1342 C, most likely the C refers to it being the cover. It is in very good vintage condition. It was used to bake and cook in but there is no damage. There is a heat check on the bottom but that was there when it was made.  It  was there when I bought it and will be there when you buy it. I describe my items accurately. 


It is signed with the circular 1964-1968 mark which includes the words Bennington Potters.

4" high Creamer made by Pennsbury Pottery in the Tulip pattern.  2nd photo shows design on the back and the 3rd photo shows the Pennsbury Pottery mark on the bottom.  Excellent condition- no damage.  Much of the Pennsbury Pottery that was produced was sold in the gift stores as souvenir items on the Pennsylvania Turnpike.  Excellent 6 1/2" high Floral Virginia Pitcher or Jug made by Blue Ridge Southern Potteries.  It is marked as such- see the 2nd photo- the ink back stamp is smudged- the picture is accurate.  The Pitcher has no chips or cracks and little, if any, crazing or tanning.  A lovely example of the "Virginia Jug" by Blue Ridge.  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 signed and numbered #19 vase stands 5 5/8 inches tall. The glaze is a rich chocolate brown. Out of the 600+ pieces in my collection, I only own 5-6 pieces in this glaze.  In my opinion, this is a vase that was not glazed with an overglaze. There is no "chocolate brown band" at the bottom of the sides. The glaze is extremely mottled, particularly in the inside. 


Based on this mark I think it is closer to the 1948 date when Ballard started to use incised shape numbers as part of the bottom mark. 


This vase is in excellent vintage condition.

This is #1460 / #1460T and was called Crown Safety Ashtray in the 1964 catalogue. It is a two part design consisting of an underbowl that can be used separately and a top cover with the safety edge. The bowl measures 5 1/4 inches wide and stands 2 1/2 inches tall to the top of the rim.  The top crown sits on top of the bowl when it is used as an ashtray. 


This was produced in four colors:  White, Turquoise, Charcoal or Brown.  This is the iconic Turquoise  color. It is marked with the Cooperative Design Bennington Vermont rectangle mark which is a transitional mark used from 1960 to perhaps 1964.  


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. 


Condition is excellent -- no chips, cracks, nicks, flakes, stains or other damage / problems.

Excellent Deviled Egg Plate by Frankoma- marked on back #819.  The Plate is 11 1/2" and has 16 spaces for the eggs with the middle compartment.  No damage- doesn't look like it was used.  See photos.  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 1650 and titled "Greek Head", an ashtray which could also be hung on the wall as a plaque as it had a built-in wire on the back. Its original 1964 price was $5.00.


It features a very stylized Head with a stylized beard done orange. The 1964 ad states the this piece was available in white or turquoise with colored accents. The glaze I believe is an early white one as it is quite speckled with two shades of white. The eyes of the head have been painted green. and an orange stain used on the beard.


This is a confirmed David Gil design. It was confirmed by Gloria Gil in May 2012.


The back of the plate/plaque has a wire hanger which was embedded in the pottery. It is signed 1651 and has the spark mark on the forearm. I would guess it is from the 1960-1962 period. It is in excellent condition.

It is from the 1955-1960 period. 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. 


Marked #1541 this is a stylized pig in a highly abstract style. David Gil designed a series of animal banks, including a hippo, an owl and a lion. This was called Penurious Pig! Like Glidden Parker in the early 1940s, Gil used various animal motifs often on his ware, though most are two dimensional representations. This fun and funky pig stands 4 1/2 inches tall to the top of its back x 8 inches long. The main portion of the bank is unglazed with some impressed asterisks covering the pig's body. The asterisks are in brown, one of four colors possible. It has the original red plastic cork to seal the opening on the bottom. It is signed Bennington Potters Bennington VT which places it in the 1962-1968 time period. This pig back was shown in a 1967-68 catalogue along with the other nine shapes. 


This bank is in excellent condition with no damage. I have priced this Penurious Pig bank very fairly. It would make a stunning sculptural piece on a McCobb or Eames era credenza or coffee table.


David Gil was featured in the publication Vermont Life in its Winter 1961 issue. In an eight page spread with one full color image and 13 black and white images, there is a full history of the founding of the pottery along with great visual references of the ware being made at that time. One can see the iconic designs of Yusuke Aida, especially the double trigger mug and coffeepot along with other fascinating items. A great reference!  Vermont Studio potter Stanley Ballard (1917-1960) graduated from Alfred University’s highly respected Ceramic Program in 1939, having studied there under these influential teachers: Marion Fosdick, Charles Harder, Clarence Merritt, and C. Katherine Nelson.


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 is an unusual shape for Ballard. It carries the shape number 24. The glaze is a green glaze which shows some of the chocolate brown underglaze at the rim. It is from his later period as there is almost no chocolate brown showing on the bottom rim of the vase. It is in excellent shape.

Produced by Vermont Mid-Century studio potter Stanley Ballard who worked in the Burlington area, this 10 inch long low planter was a typical shape of the 1950s, used to start bulbs or as a base for flower arranging or ikebana arrangements. It is in his earlier light green glaze. 


This piece carries the shape number 27 I think but the impression is a little bit unclear. It is in excellent condition and is from Ballard's middle production period as there is a band of chocolate brown underglaze visible at the bottom rim where it meets the bottom of the sides of the bowl.

This piece is shown in the 1964 catalogue as and is titled there Owl. Its original 1964 price was $3.00. This was designed by Gloria Gil.


It features a pensive Owl at rest. The cobalt and white glazed used for color on this piece pop because the background was unfired.


The back of the trivet/plaque has a wire hanger which was embedded in the pottery. It retains  four original rubber feet which protect the flat surface upon which one sets it. It is signed 1534 and has the spark mark on the forearm inside a rectangle made up of COOPERATIVE DESIGN and BENNINGTON POTTERS VERMONT.

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.  This Georges Scatchard  4 3/4 inch handled jug is a good example of the work that Scatchard has been doing since the 1960s. The inside of the jug is a dark blue glaze. The outside resembles his standard glaze for which he is known but if you look closely there are some subtle undertones of purple in a few places. His handle is perhaps one of his trademark designs.


This piece is signed on the bottom G. Scatchard and the year 200?.  There is some damage to the bottom of the piece. I don't know if it was dropped or was a second.  It does not affect how the jug sits on a flat surface.


The outside of the goblet is done in a mottled blue glaze and one can see both inclusions and the horizontal rings from the throwing. A beautiful piece. 


Currently located in Underhill, Vermont, Georges Scatchard started from a converted horsebarn with his brother Ted in 1960. An article about the two Scatchard brothers and their ceramics was published in the 1967 Spring issue of Vermont Life on pages 38-42. According to the article, he was the only New Englander to receive a merit award for three items (all pottery) entered in the 1965-1966 New England Craft Council's exhibition for new and emerging craftsmen.


Having recently sold his lamp business, he no longer has an open shop. I am not sure how long one will be able to buy a piece directly from him.

This signed #5 shape ashtray has 4 rests and is from the later commercial period. The ashtray measures 6 1/2 inches square.

There is one in each of the following glazes:  Mountain Blue, Vermont Green, White, and Tawny Brown.

This is part of the Classic Line which is shown in a 1966-67 catalogue in the Cunningham book and in a 1968 brochure on the website Modish.net.


One easy way to identify this line is by the handle. If the shape number is between 1601-1683 and it has this loop handle, it is an Aida design.


This line came in the following colors: Mountain Blue, White, Vermont Green, Rust, Tawny Brown. They are all in excellent condition.

The Coaster is in excellent condition and is signed on the back (see 2nd picture).  This Georges Scatchard early 8 1/2 inch tall  x 4 3/4 inch wide at the base vase is a great example of the work that Scatchard was doing in the 1970s and early 1980s before he decided to concentrate primarily on lamps. The inside of the rim shows the glaze which he used on the outside of the mug. You can see all the ridges of the hand thrown object.  The outside of the vase is done in tans and beiges and one can see both inclusions and the horizontal rings from the throwing.  The vase is signed on the unglazed bottom G. SCATCHARD . A beautiful piece. 


Currently located in Underhill, Vermont, Georges Scatchard started from a converted horsebarn with his brother Ted in 1960.  An article about the two Scatchard brothers and their ceramics was published in the 1967 Spring issue of Vermont Life on pages 38-42.  According to the article, he was the only New Englander to receive a merit award for three items (all pottery) entered in the 1965-1966 New England Craft Council's exhibition for new and emerging craftsmen.


His current website, gslamps.com, shows his current production and gives a brief history of his work.   Nice Pitcher in the Apple design by Watt Pottery. It stands approx. 7"  high. It's imperfections are a rough speck near the spout, light overall crazing, a small area of light discoloration on the back near the bottom and an area where it appears the clay did not fill on on the bottom underside (see 2nd photo on left in the ring). So, now that I have made it sound terrible- it is actually a very nice Apple Pitcher and probably in above average condition for it's age and the type of utilitarian stoneware that it was made to be.

His current website, gslamps.com, shows his current production and gives a brief history of his work.   This piece was one of the designs of Yusuke Aida who worked with Gil from 1961-1964 and was responsible for the designs in the "Classic Bennington" line, a line of over 40 shapes whose pieces all fall within the 1620-1688 shape number range. 


This divided relish dish designed by Yusuke Aida for Bennington Potters measures 9 1/2 inches across in length x 6 5/8 inches across and is shaped with twin sectoins. The color was referred to as Tawny Brown in the original 1964 brochure. Notice the reddish highlights which come from the firing process.


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  by Raymor 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, 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. 


Condition is excellent -- no chips, cracks, nicks, flakes, stains or other damage / problems.  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 1653 and titled "Daisies", an ashtray which could also be hung on the wall as a plaque as it had a built-in wire on the back.  Its original 1964 price was $5.00.


It  features six stylized daisies.  The stems, leaves, and petals are incised. The 1964 ad states the this piece was available in white or turquoise with colored accents. The glaze I believe is an early white one as it is quite high gloss with some mottling in the glaze giving the color depth.  The steams and leaves have been accented in a dark olive green and the flowers are accented in dark brown.


I believe that this series of ashtrays 1650-1655 was designed by David Gil's first wife Gloria Gil, who also designed the 1553 Fighting Cock tile. and perhaps all the tiles in that series.


The back of the plate/plaque is missing the wire hanger which was embedded in the pottery.  It is signed 1653 and has the spark mark on the forearm.  I would guess it is from the 1960-1964 period. It is in excellent condition.

 Produced by Vermont Mid-Century studio potter Stanley Ballard  who worked in the Burlington areaa, this 5 1/8 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 light green glaze over a chocolate brown underglaze and sloping sides. A great example of Ballard's glaze and early shape. It is in excellent condition.

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.  Prior to changing the name to Bennington Potters around 1960, David Gil's company was known as Cooperative Design. There, he and other Alfred designers fashioned all sorts of interesting Mid-Century items. Having trained at Alfred University, Gil came to Bennington in 1948. His designs are included in many Mid-Century exhibits and catalogues. 


This is the #1342 rimmed casserole bottom.  It is done in an early very dark steel gray glaze.  It measures 10 1/4 inches across x 7 inches wide.  It originally had a lid which features a metal handle which was formed into the pottery. This is just the bottom. It would make a great serving dish as is. It's a good-sized practical dish.

 Produced by Vermont Mid-Century studio potter Stanley Ballard  who worked in the Burlington area, this shape seems to be one of the early ones by Ballard which didn't make it to the later production period.


 The vase measures 5 1/2 inches high x 5 1/4 inches wide. The opening is 4 1/4 inches long x 2 3/8 inches wide. Each one I own either has no shape number or is number 21 with the early chocolate brown band around the bottom dating it from his middle period of production. This vase carries both the shape number and the Ballard signature but they are very faint. 


The chocolate underglaze can be seen at the top, the inside, and underneath the mottling on the body. This early white glaze is stunning. The glaze is a standard early shade of blue he used often. The vase is in excellent condition.

 Produced by Vermont Mid-Century studio potter Stanley Ballard  who worked in the Burlington area, this is one of Ballard's smallest vases, the number 40 shape. It stands 2 1/2 inches tall and is 2 5/8 inches square at the top. It is signed on the bottom with the standard incised S. Ballard  VERMONT signature and the shape number 40.


The glaze on this small piece is a standard Ballard green glaze with yellow undertones with the chocolate brown underglaze visible at the top rim and at the very bottom of the base. This dates this piece to Ballard's middle production period.  Made in Bristol Vermont, this Moutain Kiln Pottery 4 inch square 4 rest ashtray was made by either John F. Kennedy or Paul T. Kennedy, brothers who formed Green Mountain Wood Crafters in Charlotte Vermont in 1937 and worked there until a fire in 1942. 


Post WWII, they were located in Bristol Vermont until 1959. They moved into the former Sheffield Farms building on Route 22A in Vergennes in 1960, adding a gift shop where tourists were able to watch the wood ware being made. From 1960-1980 they had several retail locations in Florida, New York, New Hampshire but the most successful was in downtown Burlington at the corner of College and Church street, now Sweetwater's restaurant since 1980, though the Kennedy family still owns the building. 



The earliest piece I have heard of is this pitcher dated July 1947. I do not yet know when the pottery stopped operating. I now know that whichever brother was not involved with the wooden ware Vergennes operation opened a store in New Haven, VT which was operating as late as 1971 when an acquaintance's grandmother stopped and bought some pottery marked as Pittsfield Potters there.


In excellent condition, it is glazed in a high gloss dark pink glaze. The inside is glazed in a white glaze.  It is marked Mountain Kiln Pottery, July '47 and Bristol, VT. It is the second one I know of.  Vermont Studio potter Stanley Ballard (1917-1960) graduated from Alfred University’s highly respected Ceramic Program in 1939, having studied there under these influential teachers: Marion Fosdick, Charles Harder, Clarence Merritt, and C.

Standing 4 1/4 inches tall x 3 1/2 inches wide, this Vermont contemporary deepy incised decorated covered jar was made by Patrick Kennedy of Newark Vermont as his label on the bottom clearly states.  He also has a stamped symbol which I can see now is a conjoined P and K to form his stamp.  


This is a covered jar glazed on the inside but left rough on the outside.  The deep chocolate brown layer can be seen through the cameo cuttings on the outside layer. Very interesting. I could find little on the artist. If you have any information, please pass it along.
