Hampshire Pottery, Matte Green Snake Basket Form, Arts & Crafts Scroll Design

$395


For sale is a wonderful and early form made by The Hampshire Pottery of Keene, New Hampshire. The form is snake basket planter with an embossed arts & crafts design. The vase is done in Hampshire Pottery's famous matte cucumber green glaze. This planter is a nice cabinet size as it stands 3 1/4" tall and is 5 1/2" in diameter. The bottom foot measures 3 1/4" in diameter.

The vase has a squat form with a pattern of embossed scrolls that lie on the shoulder of the vessel. It is very similar to a snake basket shape as it has tapered sides with the shoulder rolling over and inwards to the center opening in the top. The vase displays a deep cucumber green glaze that is quite uniform throughout. The inside or well of the planter has a nice high gloss waterproofing glaze. The bottom of the vase shows the signature ground down outer bottom ring with the white glaze on the underside bottom.

The vase is considered to be in excellent condition, free of nicks, chips, dings and hairlines. The vase is signed on the bottom with the incised "Hampshire Pottery" in script letters along with the M in a circle mark and the shape number 71. The "M" in a circle mark was used to honor Cadmon Robertson's wife "Emoretta". She was the sister of the founder, James Scollay Taft. Cadmon Robertson was the head chemist for the glazes and ran Hampshire Pottery from 1904-1914. This "M" in a circle mark was used during his tenure, subsequently this piece was made circa 1904-1914.

Hampshire Pottery started producing matte glazes in 1891. This was 7 years earlier than their main competitor "Grueby Faience" of Boston, Mass. Hampshire Pottery resembles the style of Grueby but were much more affordable as they were mold made pieces as opposed to hand thrown.

I want to point out that this is not a common shape number to find in Hampshire Pottery. I have had hundreds through my 46+ years as a dealer and collector. This is the first time I have ever owned this form number. This will make a wonderful addition to any matte pottery collection of art pottery and would look great on that Stickley Mission arts and crafts bookcase.
