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 1959-1960 period when Gil  included both the words Design Cooperative and Bennington Vermont.


This square 8 inch diameter trivet / plaque was advertised in the 1964 catalogue as 1535, a trivet 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 Eggs. Its original 1964 price was $3.00. I recently learned that the six 8 inch square flat tiles were all designed by Gloria Gil, David's first wife with whom he started the company in 1948.


It features 6 eggs in various stages. Done in an abstract stylized manner, the eggs are molded in relief and the incised areas are glazed in a very dark green and black. 


The back of the trivet/plaque has a wire hanger which was embedded in the pottery. It retains all four original rubber feet which protects the flat surface upon which one sets it. It is signed 1535 and has the spark mark on the forearm inside a rectangle made up of COOPERATIVE DESIGN and BENNINGTON POTTERS VERMONT. It is in excellent vintage condition.


Bennington Potters is 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.  This is a 9 inch vinyl artist doll, Neela, of the of Girls of Many Lands Collection by American Girl, which includes an all original doll, doll stand, and the paperback book, 'Neela: Victory Song', by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni. Helen Kish designed this doll. Neela, has dark coloring, brunette hair drawn back in a very long braid with a gardenia flower, painted brown eyes, and golden earrings. She is wearing an elaborate long silk orange sari with silver accents, a golden necklace, and other silver and gold jewelry including arm and ankle bracelets. The preowned set comes mint and sealed inside its original heavy cardboard box that opens like a book to reveal the doll on one side and the book on the other. The doll has her hang tag. This doll, as others in this collection did not come with undergarments as she was intended for display. She represents a girl in India in the 1930s when it struggled for freedom after over 200 years of British rule. She is wearing a wedding costume for her sister's wedding when Neela was 12 years old and recognized as a woman. The box of this old stock has minor dings on the edge, but has never been opened.

Although the practical utilitarian purpose for this dish is as a lemon slice server for tea, the design vaults it into a totally different category as an art object.  


Measuring 7 inches long x 6 1/4 inches wide, this could hold a lot of lemon slices.  


What is really striking about this piece is the restraint with which the decorators designed it.  The bold back outlines on the figural berry and leaf handle draw the eye, but it is the touch of mint green under the black handle which pops.  Noritake Art Deco pieces with figural elements have been popular for a long time.  This is a great example of this technique.


It is signed on the back with the standard Green Wreath Noritake mark.

This studio glass artist has put out a limited amount of work over the past 33 years. He stopped blowing glass around 1990 and didn't start blowing again until 1999. He uses NO MOLDS and his only help has been his wife Donna who is responsible for all the finish work on the pieces. I had an email from Terry and Donna in 2002 stating that he doesn't think it would be fair to the collectors to make any of the same things again. They decided in 2006 to make glass again, but they are not going to make anything that they have made in the past. They pledge to develop new colors. He's a great artist with VERY few early pieces out there. This toothpick holder is in mint condition and is signed Terry Crider and dated 1976 on the base. That is the sane year after he started blowing glass commercially! This early piece has the earliest signature with the word Terry on the top, then the date 1976, then the last name Crider on the second line.  It is the only one I have seen with this arrangement.


This Terry Crider 1976 TP is done in a highly irridescent amethyst base glass with 4 thick iridized white pulled feathers all of which are iridized. I like that each of the pulled feathers has its own character. It's hard to imagine the amount of work that went into this beautiful, hand made toothpick holder. 


This toothpick holder stands about 2 1/2 inches high. The top rim is 1 7/8 inches wide. It is a fantastic piece of American 20th century art glass! It is in perfect condition.


I am a long time member and past President (1988) of the National Toothpick Holder Collectors Club. I guarantee the authenticity of this TP. For more info on toothpick holders as a great collectible, visit the National Toothpick Holder Collectors Society web page at (www.nthcs.org)

Annemarie Davidson (1920-2012) 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 2011 I have been told.


This 9 inch diameter low bowl, most likely from the 1960-1961 time period, is a good example of an earlier piece as it does not features the lines usually found in the Jewel line. It also has a very unusual arrangement to the glass Jewels. This plate features 3 large yellow gold jewels separated by 3 smaller light and darker pumpkin orange jewels, all symmetrically arranged on the plate in a triangle between each major Jewel. This particular example is unusual in that the two colors of jewels used are not in high contrast to each other as on many of her pieces. 


The back of the plate has the remnants of the gold paper label and is signed with her charcteristic AD interwined intiial.  The label would have read Annemarie Davidson handcrafted enamels Sierra Madre California. Every piece was handcrafted by her alone, from start to finish. This particular signature is an earlier one based on the fact that the curves at the right top of the letter D are not perfectly square as on her later signatures.


It is in very good vintage condition with just two tiny areas of rim roughness. It is a scarce piece from her early period.


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.  scarce signed 1972 Mark Peiser art glass vase.  2013 Vogue 7.5 inch hard plastic Vintage Reproduction My Best Dress doll, No.12SL114.

The bottle on the left with the carved stopper of a couple dancing stands 2 1/2 inches without the stopper and 5 inches tall with it. The dauber is missing on the stopper. There is no damage to this great stopper. However, there a few chips to two corners of the bottle and two small chips to one of the side of the panels. The  bottle is not signed but has much wear on the bottom. This bottle was purchased in Montreal Canada.


The bottle on the right has a great Art Deco look and appeal to it.  The bottle base stands 2 inches tall and the bottle is 5 inches tall with the stopper in it.  Both the stopper and bottle have diagonally etched lines. The stopper has cross-hatching on it. The dauber is all there as it fits down into the bottle perfectly.  There is one small chip to one facet of the stopper.  The base has no damage. 


But both and add them to your Art Deco perfume bottle collection today.  Great shape to this yellow Harlequin sauceboat/gravy. Getting harder to find. I love the Art Deco styling of this piece. The piece is in excellent vintage condition. A reasonable price for a usable piece.  This Noritake Deco 6 1/4  inch wide lemon server has a great look! It is one of the most stylized Noritake designs I have seen.


The contrast of the primary colors of yellow and red is striking. The wild red, green, and black leaves with black outlines on the outside and cobalt blue outlines on the inside add unity to the piece and  highlight the asymmetrically placed white blossoms .The piece is in excellent vintage condition.  Red wreath mark in very good condition.


I guarantee this piece to be Noritake Art Deco.

Produced by the Morgantown Glass Company  in the period when they were known as the Morgantown Glass Guild which started in 1933, this is a pair of 5 inch wide dessert or finger bowls  in the Shamrock Green color.  The highest point of the bowl near the spout is  2 inches. 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 5 inch wide finger or dessert bowls is in the Shamrock Green color, one of the harder colors to find in this line.  It is in excellent condition and ready to join your Mid-century home as you serve salsa or chips  on the veranda or patio (such great mid century terms). Price is for the pair.

They had a design office in New York City where current design sources would be used to send ideas to Japan for the Noritake decorators to use.  One of the most highly collected periods of Noritake production is from the 1921 - 1935 Art Deco period. 


They are renowed worldwide for their dinnerware but had a whole division focused on what was then called "fancyware", items for household consumption decorated artistically.  Though very reasonable in price when first sold, they are now collected by both collectors in the Western world as well as in Japan.


This octagonal bowl measures 7 1/4 inches in diameter.  It stands 2 inches tall at the handle. It has two tab handles and one can see that the mold from which it came had some in relief scrolls at the rim.  The entire rim of the bowl is decorated in 24 K gold.  The three large clusters of flowers are placed asymmetrically on the plate, a revolutionary idea at the time.  Another Art Deco common feature was the stylization of nature. The flowers and leaves are NOT painted in a realistic manner but are abstract and stylized.  


Another Art Deco common feature was the use of what are called speed lines, which featured three lines in the bands which contrast from the geometric nature of the plate shape. 


Noritake is well known for its luster glazes, the most common of which is tan luster. Their less common luster glazes are gold, silver, green, pearl, and yellow luster (also spelled lustre sometimes).


This bowl has only tan luster on it but it uses scarce colors of orange and crimson in the paint. It is in very good vintage condition with some very slight wear in the center but no loss of luster. The green Noritake Wreath mark indicates production between 1921-1925. Later the mark was in red.

Standing 3 3/4 inches tall x 4 3/4 inches wide at the base, this stunning piece of Vermont studio pottery was designed and made by Sally Duval, a longtime Vermont studio potters.  This 6 hole toothbrush potter has an underglaze of bluish gray, then two overglazes, one of a cream yellow color and the other a chocolate brown glaze.

I have owned coffee mugs by Sally for 20+ years. I use them every day. They are sturdy and dishwasher friendly.

 Produced by the Morgantown Glass Company  in the period when they were known as the Morgantown Glass Guild which started in 1933, this is the 7 1/4 inch tall  28 oz. footed pitcher  in the Peacock Blue color.  The highest point of the pitcher near the spout is actually a bit taller at 7 3/4 inches. 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 28 ounce pitcher is in the Peacock Blue color, one of the harder colors to find in this line.  It is 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).

 This is a striking Bitossi Italy Rosenthal-Netter large planter designed by Aldo Londi in 1974. The planter stands 6 inches tall x 7 inches wide at its widest point. This vase is part of the Rosenthal-Netter line of imported Italian pottery and ceramics.


The pattern on this Aldo Londi creation is called Moderna Marocco which is the Italian word for Modern Morrocan. According to Mark Hall in his recent book on Italian Mid-century pottery, this line was inspired by the blossoming studio pottery movement of the 1970s. As Hill states, high quality designs such as this took longer to apply and were more expensive, making them rare today. Unusually, this design does not include sgraffito or impressed elements.


Excellent condition. When tapped, it rings solidly.  Original Rosenthal-Netter paper label. A second label with the words Made in Italy stamped on one side in red and the numbers 266/15.  I have two other pieces from this line with labels. All have the line number of 266/. I have to conclude that the 15 is the shape number and the 266 is the number for Moderna Marocco.


In the Mark Hill book, the 10 inch version of this rare vase on page 72 is valued at 300-500 pounds. My price for the planter in this rare pattern is a bit more reasonable.

The pattern on this Aldo Londi creation is called Spagnolo which is the Italian word for Spanish. According to Mark Hall in his recent book on Italian Mid-century pottery, this line was inspired by Moorish tiles.  The form is a traditional Italian form but the decoration is pure Mid-century.


Good vintage condition but there is some damage which is why I marked it as is. On the underside of the lip of the top rim, there is one small area where the glaze has flaked off.  The body of the pottery is not damaged but the glaze flake is evident. I never repair or touch up my items so you may if you wish.


This vase without damage is valued at over 100 pounds in Mark HIll's recent book on Mid-century Italian pottery. With the glaze flake I am happy to pass it along for a little more than what I paid.


The bottom carries a standard Bitossi mark. The shape number 27071.  The word Italy is impressed in the base.

 Alvino Bagni (1919-2000) founded Bagni Ceramiche in Lastra a Signa in August 1946. During the 1950s and 1960s he worked closely with Irving Richards of Raymor, the American distributor, as well as with their competitor, Rosenthal-Netter. The United States became Bagni’s largest market with over 80 percent of the company’s production going there. Thousands of modern designs were produced over four decades. Though it is not possible to categorize Bagni’s work easily, the wax-resist technique, impressed geometric shapes, mottled brown or green glazes and high-relief geometric forms applied to the surface are hallmarks of his work. Many designs were also glossily glazed in bright colors in simple stylized patterns such as banding or swirling lines. (Mark Hill, Alla Moda). 


Red clay was used from the late 1940s-1950s, before a finer white clay was used. Bagni considered his "Sea Garden" design to be his version of Londi’s Rimini Blu design. The factory closed in 1992.


As far as signatures, production destined for Raymor or Rosenthal-Netter was often marked in different ways. The first and most common Bagni for Raymor mark is a painted mark comprised of an ‘R’ for Raymor, followed by a three or four digit number. This number is probably Raymor’s internal stock number. The second way is a Raymor paper label printed with ‘BAG’ and a similar number. Some Bagni pieces for Rosethal-Netter were marked with two digits, followed by a slash, followed by two digits. This was often accompanied by a paper label (Mark Hill, Alla Moda, page 216)


This Bagni vase is signed 30/3 Italy. The underglaze is done is a crackled glaze, an imitation of a famous Chinese glaze, and the predominant color of the glaze is a white with a spiral pattern of green, turquoise and cobalt blue rectangles. The inside is the same green used on the outside.. It is in excellent vintage shape with the exception of two pinpoint flakes to the glaze on the top rim. There is no damage to the body under the missing part of the glaze. All in all, it is in very good vintage shape for its 40 years.


The vase stands 8  inches tall x 5 inches at its widest point. Add it to your collecton of Midcentury Italian pottery, Raymor or Bagni today.

This amberina art glass footed toothpick holder stands  2 15/16 inches tall.  It has what is known as a Lazy Amberina portion wherein the division between the amber glass and the heat-sensitive red glass is not delineated neatly but flows further down on one side than the other.


The color is a deeper brownish amber than what Phoenix Glass company produced. As well, the foot does not have the continuation of the optic pattern of the body.  


It is my best guess that this piece is of European origin, most likely English or French.


In any case, it is a beautiful piece of Victorian art glass. The holder is in excellent condition with no chip, flakes, or cracks. There are some small bubbles in the glass body but it was manufactured that way.

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.

It was said to be the American version of the Cizhou ceramics of the Chinese Song Dynasty. Glidden later had opened his ceramic plant. In 1946 the Glidden output was increased to 6000 pieces a week. In 1949 Glidden Pottery was second pottery to be used and is licensed for RAM Press. 


Glidden Pottery was founded by Glidden Parker, who himself was a student at the New York State College of Ceramics in Alfred. He attended summer school from 1937-39 where he was a student under the designer Don Schreckengost. While many attribute the success of Glidden Pottery to the genius of Glidden Parker alone, the true genius lay in his ability to select colleagues to work with who served as designers, mold makers, and decorators. Sergio Dello Strologo and Fong Chow both collaborated with Glidden Parker and numerous awards and prizes were awarded to their designs. Most of Glidden’s known glazes, shapes and patterns are in collaboration with Fong Chow. 


The marketing of Glidden pottery was done by Rubel and Company, marketers, in known giftware and women’s magazines in 1940 to 1950. In February 28, 1958 the Glidden Pottery closed.



This Glidden #58 concentric rings 5 1/2 inch tall vase is stunning and scarcely found. The glaze is not Glidden's standard turquoise matrix but a combination of a darker blue over the turquoise .

Here is some information I found online about Fred Press.


Born in Boston, Massachusetts, Fred Press founded the sculpture collection Contemporary Arts, Inc. and taught at the Vesper George School of Art. He is perhaps one of the most versatile and prolific of America’s present day artist designers. Hundreds of his original sculptures have been reproduced and collected.  His paintings, which have been exhibited in one man shows as well as group shows and competitions, have brought critical acceptance as well as prizes and have been acquired by such notable institutions as the Worcester Art Museum. His product designs, which have been distinguished by New York’s Museum of Modern Art with a good design award, have been executed in a multitude of media and distributed widely into virtually every corner of America. Fred Press is most known for his sculpture, but his unique glassware was popular during the 1940s, 50s, 60s and continues to be popular today!


This particular carafe by Corning can be seen on page 121 of the 3rd edition of the Mauzy Pyrex book.  They were sold both with and without a lid. They were meant to go on a wire rack over a flame on the stove to keep coffee warm. 


I say repurpose this item and make it a fun and funky summertime cold beverage server:  iced tea, lemonade, cocktails even.


There is a little wear to the inside of the neck as seen in the photo.  There is a slight scratch to the side of the brass collar.  Buy it and enjoy using it with no fear.

Tommy as the Mad Hatter has platinum blonde hair under a giant aqua hat with 10/6 on it,  aqua and gold striped pants, an aqua vest, aqua with white polka dots bowtie, gold coat, and aqua shoes. The dolls come in a box with a Wonderland backdrop with the Cheshire Cat, a fold-out table with a plastic teapot and tea cup. There is a synopsis of the setting on back of the box. These dolls are mint, and never-removed-from box old stock. However, there may be minor dents on the bottom of the box or on the side.  This pinched Italian mid-century bowl is signed 81/SA Italy MNco.  Made probably for the line titled Mr. Norman, this was imported from Italy and retailed in the United States.  It has much in common with pieces from the Gambone firm.


The body of the piece is a white clay, covered with a speckled brown on white base glaze.  Over that has been poured a drip deep green volcanic glaze which runs down the exterior sides of the bowl.  The inside is pure glossy white.


It measures 8 inches long x 3 1/2 inches wide at its widest point and stands 4 inches tall.  I can see it on a nice McCobb credenza or on a great Midcentury coffee table.  Fill it with flowers or candy.  It is a practical and great piece of Italian midcentury pottery.
