For Sale I have a very nice piece of Art Pottery made by The Fulper Pottery Company of Flemington, NJ. What I have is a Mission Bowl and it is done in one of Fulper's most unique Glazes. I would call this a "Speckled Matte Blue Flambé w Blue Crystalline Glaze".
The Bowl is a very pleasing Mission Style Shape. It displays a very Unique Speckled Matte Blue Glaze that is accented with Flambé at the top of the Bowl. The Flambé Glaze rolls over into the Inside causing the Glaze to run or drip into the inside Bottom. This effect is spectacular as it covers the entire inside walls of the bowl. The inside Bottom of the Bowl shows Blue Crystals much like Fulper's Blue Crystalline Glaze. There is a lot going on here for this piece. I have never seen another Fulper piece with this Glaze in my 35+ years as a Dealer. I am told by the Advance Fulper Collectors this Glaze is called "Black Flambé over Powdered Blue".
The Bowl is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The only issue is Factory and very minor. There is a few areas under the roll on the outside of the bowl that appears to be a little weak in glaze. Kind of like glaze misses but there is some lighter blue glaze showing but no gloss finish over it.
The Bowl is signed on the bottom with the earliest known Fulper Mark. The Bowl has the "Fulper" Ink Stamp mark inside a "Small Squatty Rectangle" with another Ink Stamp large letter what appears to be an "S". This denotes this as a Trial Glaze and explains why I have never seen this Glaze Combination before. This mark dates this piece to be made Circa 1909-1916. I feel it is a very early piece and was made more like circa 1909-1911. This is known as shape number 17 in the Fulper Catalog pages.
This piece is for that Advanced Fulper Collector looking for those Rare Glaze Combinations. As we collectors know Fulper is all about the Glazes. This Bowl exemplifies that statement. It's a Great Glaze with lots of things going on. I'm sure the buyer will not be disappointed.
