Abingdon Console Bowl 1940's

Abingdon Console Bowl 1940's

Description
This pretty pale peach console bowl was made by Abingdon Pottery in Abingdon, Illinois between 1934 and 1950. A console bowl was meant to be displayed on a console table, which is a table designed to fit against the wall, supported by brackets attached to the wall or with legs resembling brackets. The bowls were quite popular during the 1940’s and into the 1950’s.

Peach Console Dish Bottom View Showing MarkPeach Console Dish Empty-N-

This bowl has a scalloped upper rim, a scrolled handle on each end and a molded acanthus leaf on the interior below each handle. It is 14 inches long, 6 inches wide at the center and 3 ¾ inches high. On the base there is a very clear blue Abingdon USA stamp in a rectangle and the impressed mold number 532.

Abingdon pottery used very high quality clay and beautiful glazes. This example is in wonderful condition, with no chips, cracks, nicks or crazing and little wear.

The pale peach color of this bowl works well as a neutral with many other interior design color schemes.

Sorry, the peaches are not included.

Robinson-Ransbottom Trio of Spongeware Pitchers

Robinson-Ransbottom Trio of Spongeware Pitchers

Description

This set of three spongeware pottery pitchers was made by Robinson-Ransbottom Pottery. There are two 1 pint pitchers and one 1 quart pitcher, all sponged in blue on a creamy white body with a clear top glaze. Each piece has a stamped mark in black on the bottom that includes the company name, the city, state and USA and the word "pitcher" with the capacity. 




Robinson Ransbottom was created by a merger of two companies in 1920 and proved to be one of the few companies that made it into the 21st century producing serviceable stoneware (they went out of business in 2005). Since they were located in Roseville, Ohio, their items are sometimes misidentified as being made by Roseville Pottery, a company famous for their art pottery. 

Each one of these 1970's pitchers is in excellent condition, with just crazing to the clear glaze. It's interesting to note that the sponging on each pitcher varies in amount, with the very slightly shorter pint one having the most. The pint pitchers measure about 4 3/4 inches in height and the quart one measures about 6 1/4 inches tall. They are heavy, sturdy pitchers and a delight to use for serving, decorate with or add to your spongeware collection.

Ginger Jar Imari Porcelain 1950's Japan

Ginger Jar Imari Porcelain 1950's Japan


Description
This pretty lidded ginger jar with its original footed wood stand is Imari ware, a style of porcelain named for the port in Japan from which it was exported. The cobalt blue and rust are typical colors used on the pure white porcelain; on this piece, the designs are accented with a generous amount of gold.


4211-Imari Ginger jar Five Photo Pack

 The central pattern is of flowers in Imari vases. This vase was made in the 1950's; the paper label on the bottom, an oval navy blue "MADE IN JAPAN" with gold trim, is still intact.

The vase measures 6 inches tall to the top of the gilded knop; when on its round stand, it's 7 inches tall. The black wood stand itself has a diameter of 5 1/2 inches. Both the vase and the stand are in like-new condition, ready to display with pride and a Japanese flair.

National Uncommon Yellow Ware Bowl

National Uncommon Yellow Ware Bowl

Description

We don't find marked yellow ware bowls all that often and certainly not ones by National Pottery, one of the companies located on Potters Alley in Roseville, Ohio in the early 20th century. They made utilitarian pottery like bowls, cookware and flower pots for about 20 years.


We found National Pottery listed in Chilton's Hotel Supply Index published in 1922; in a Popular Science Magazine classified ad published in 1923 and The Thomas Register of American Manufacturers in 1922. By 1925 they were operating two potteries, one down the street from the other, but a major fire in 1938 brought an end to the operations.

The mark on this bowl, "NATIONAL," is impressed on the bottom inside the foot ring. It has three outer chocolate brown bands and is made of thick, buttery yellow clay with a lovely glossy glaze. Measurements are 7 1/2 inches across the top, tapering to a 3 3/4 inch diameter base, about 3 inches in height and a weight of 1 1/2 pounds. Other than the usual glaze pops, pinholes and stilt marks typical of these homespun wares, this piece has underglaze discolorations around the rim both inside and out. There are no chips, cracks or repairs. (The "dent" you see on the rim in photographs #1 and #5 is in the clay itself, made during the potting; it's not a chip). We recommend that the bowl not be used with wet ingredients, but placed on a shelf for vintage decor or used to hold dry stuffs like fruit or nuts. It's an exciting find for the serious collector of yellow ware or American pottery.
