Vases in Search of their Flowers

It would seem logical to me that every vase yearns for the flowers that it was meant to contain. That is after all the reason that it was created. This lump of clay was formed into a vessel, adorned and decorated, fired and finished all in preparation for the day when it would hold the blooms that it was designed to hold.

"Passionite Kisses" Roses in Blue Vase (Personal Collection)

This lovely blue vase seems satisfied that it holds a small bouquet of roses. In fact if you watch carefully it seems to be glowing, glowing with the pride of completing its purpose.

Unfortunately not all vases have the same fulfillment as our lucky vase pictured above. In fact a number of such items waiting to be fulfilled will be on display and available for purchase today at the Long Beach Antique Market.

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
