Tustin Flea Market – June 26th Features Newly Acquired Weller, McCoy, Roseville and Van Briggle Vases

Brush-McCoy Pottery, c.1920-30's 5.75" Blended Greens & Blues Onyx Vase. Mold #749, $90.00 SOLD

Every once in awhile we stumble across some truly beautiful and unique items, usually from an unexpected source which helps to make the find even more special.  A recent shopping expedition produced a number of terrific items that will be offered for the first time this Sunday, June 26th at the Tustin Flea Market in Tustin, California, a.k.a. The Jamestown Vintage Flea Market.

Van Briggle Pottery, c. Late 1980's 8.5" Southwestern Motif Vase in Ming Turquoise Glaze by Finisher CB (Clare Beyers), $195.00 SOLD

One special find were two Weller Loru vases from the late 1930’s. When we first noticed them we were struck by how similar the glaze color was to the Mulberry Glaze being employed by Van Briggle during the same time period. I am sure it was one of those “secret glazes” that mysteriously made an appearance at a rival pottery company. Ah the espionage of the mid 1930’s pottery business!

Weller Pottery, "Loru" c.1933-39 8" Footed Vase with Raised Leaves and a Flared Rim in Mulberry Glaze, $105.00 SOLD

Weller Pottery, "Loru" c.1933-39 5" Footed Planter - Vase with Flared Rim in Mulberry Glaze, $70.00 SOLD

Terrific Offering of Art Deco Inspired Roseville Pattern “Teasel”

Roseville Pottery, circa 1938 "Teasel" Six Piece Collection, $1500.00 (Also Available Individually)

Billy Blue Eye Pottery is pleased to offer a six piece collection of Roseville Pottery’s 1938 “Teasel” pattern.  The set consisting of a low jardiniere, a low vase and four six to nine inch vases are terrific examples of Roseville’s Art Deco inspired pattern. The elegant line of a single stem from the teasel plant artfully placed as if touched by the wind is a reminder of the beauty found in the understated decoration presented in this Roseville offering.  In “Teasel” Roseville shows us its versatility in depiction of flower and nature; a dramatic departure from other 1930’s floral patterns such as “Poppy”, “Sunflower” and “Fuchsia”.

The set is being offered at $1,500.00 for all six pieces.  Although we prefer to keep this collection intact, the pieces may be purchased individually. (Priced from $200.00 to $340.00 each)
