For sale is a rare and wonderful Art and Crafts shaped planter made by The Fulper Pottery Company of Flemington, NJ. The planter shape is a buttressed handled planter or low bowl. The planter is done in one of Fulper Pottery's hardest to find glaze combinations known as "Oatmeal Flambe". This planter has some size to it as it is 9 1/4" in diameter, outside handles measurements. It stands 3 1/2" tall and the foot or bottom has a diameter of 3 3/8"in diameter. The top opening is 6" in diameter inside measurements.
This planter has a wonderful bowl shape with applied buttress handles opposite of each other. The glaze is outstanding as you can see. There is a beautiful black brown flambe drip over an oatmeal speckled body. The glaze runs are the longest at each handle as the drip glaze extending down to the bottom give this piece its character. The other glaze runs are in the middle of the bowl and extend about two thirds of the way down its side. This inside of the planter display a beautiful Chinese blue crystalline glaze and is quite striking.
This planter is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, major nicks, chips or dings. There is a tiny glaze flea nick along the bottom edge and is quite hard to see and considered insignificant. The inside shows very minor wear in the bottom glaze. The planter is marked on the underside bottom with Fulper's earliest ink stamp "Fulper" inside a rectangle signature mark. This was Fulper's earliest period and was know as the Vasekraft years. This mark was used from 1909-1916. This form is one of the most desirable to own in Fulper Pottery and is quite rare. I have been unable to document the form number from the book as well as hundreds of pictures available on the internet.
This is an excellent example of this form and glaze from Fulper. I'm quite sure the buyer will be very pleased with their purchase. This would look Great on that Stickley, Mission, Arts and Crafts style bookcase.
