Hampshire

 

$895.00


For sale is a very rare piece of art pottery made by The Hampshire Pottery Company of Keene, NH. The item is called a "Ginger Jar" and it is done in Hampshire Pottery's most desirable cucumber green glaze. This jar is a nice cabinet size as it stands 5 1/4" tall to the top of the lid and is 5 3/4" in diameter at the bulge. The foot has a diameter of 3 1/2". The opening is 3 1/2" with the lid off.

The vase displays a bulbous form with a round lid with a button knob to store your Ginger, Garlic or even Tea into. This jar has a uniform matte cucumber green glaze that is pretty even throughout. I have been collecting and dealing in Hampshire Pottery for over 35 years. I have never seen another one of these anywhere including color pictures of this form from the internet. I have the shape documented in the black and white Hampshire Pottery reprint booklet from 1916. This is a must for that collector that really wants a rare form in matte green.

This lidded jar is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, chips, nicks or dings. I really can make any excuses for this other than you can see a mold line running horizontally around the upper middle area on the piece and a few pin pops in the glaze. This jar is signed on the bottom with the incised script "Hampshire Pottery" signature mark along with the M in a circle and the form number 97 in raised relief. As an added bone it still retains its original "Hampshire Pottery Label" with the shape number "97" and the price "$2.62" written in. This was a fair amount of money during that time frame.

Since this jar has the "M" in a Circle mark I can date it. The "M" in a circle mark was used during Cadmon Robertson's tenure with Hampshire Pottery from 1904-1914. He was their chemist and helped to develop over 900 different glazes. This mark was used to honor his Wife "Emoretta". She was the sister of the founder, James Scollay Taft. This will make a wonderful addition to any matte green pottery collection of art pottery. It would look great on that Stickley, mission arts and crafts bookcase or sideboard.

Hampshire Pottery started producing Matte Glazes in 1891. This was 7 years earlier than their main Competitor "Grueby Faience" of Boston, Mass. Hampshire Pottery resembles the style of Grueby but were much more affordable as they were mold made pieces as opposed to hand thrown. Thus the nickname "Poor Mans Grueby" was given to this line by the Grueby Pottery collectors. Hampshire Pottery closed after Cadmon Robertson's death in 1914 and reopened again in 1916. They produced Art Pottery until 1917 and then they focused on Dinnerware for Hotels and Restaurants along with Souvenirs until 1923 when Hampshire Pottery closed permanently.
