    Here’s an unmarked blended glaze vase. Haven’t been able to identify the shape & maker. (Don’t have these collector books.) Note the orange-y bottom. Also the three kiln
    marks. I’ve found Fulper, Muncie, Peters & Reed pieces similar glazes and the orange-y bottom. Do you know which pottery company made this shape vase? THANKS!

      Maybe Cliftwood?
    2. art.pottery, 2 years ago
      Or Monmouth/Western Stoneware

      Thanks for the names but do you have any references to the shape and orange-y glaze? I see examples of Muncie and Fulper with similar orange-y mottling on the bottom. Fulper has a very similar pillow vase shaped piece.
    4. artfoot artfoot, 2 years ago
      Cliftwood is a good guess. It doesn't look right for Fulper to me though you can probably find better information about Fulper online than I have handy. I did go through the Muncie book (Collector's Encyclopedia of Muncie Pottery by Jon Rans and Mike Eckelman) where I did find a similar glaze (Brown Drip on Peachskin). Unfortunately there is not a shape match - nothing really even close - anywhere. Muncie is probably unlikely.
      Cliftwood is related to Morton Potteries and there may be some information in that book - sorry, I don't have that one.

      I can't find a shape justification in the Peters & Reed book either (Sanford's Guide to P&R by Martha & Steve Sanford).
    6. art.pottery, 2 years ago
      Peters and Reed would be red clay - most of the time. Muncie, white clay, always.

      I have seen Cliftwood vases with the same rust colored mottling on the base. Looked through the Hall text “Morton Potteries: 99 Years” - didn’t find the form, but there are a number of examples of their ‘Chocolate Brown’ glaze, nearly identical to that on your vase.

      Thanks for all your help! I looked at the foot with a magnifying glass: the clay is a deep golden yellow clay not unlike the Ohio potteries (I’m a Brush/McCoy collector since late 80’s.) I’ll look further w/your suggestions! Thx again!

      Hey check this out: see new pic ... deleted one & posted this one ... a flower frog I found posted on a website called VARAGE SALE. Lady has the flower frog for sale stating it is unmarked but thinks its Cliftwood ... she’s IN MORTON, IL. Same exact glaze.
    9. nancymarshall, 2 years ago
      These are both Monmouth. I have a collection of these pieces, which were made in the 1930s. Also, I bought the flower frog vase that was advertised on Varage Sale.
    10. nancymarshall, 2 years ago
      These had small paper labels which are usually missing.

      Yes thanks, mystery solved.
