Van Briggle Pottery
Van Briggle Pottery is a favorite among collectors of fine art pottery. Van Briggle Pottery was founded by Artis and Anne Van Briggle in 1900 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The husband and wife team had previously worked for Rookwood Pottery but were forced to quit due to Artus Van Briggle's poor health. They worked together producing fine pottery vases and other pottery items until the death of Artus from tuberculosis in 1904. Anne Van Briggle ran the company and continued to create some of Van Briggle's most cherished items until her death in 1912. This period from 1901 until 1912 comprises what Van Briggle collectors consider to be the company's early period. Pottery from this period of time is very collectible and generally commands the highest prices among Van Briggle pieces.
Van Briggle is unique among American art pottery companies of the early 1900's as it is the only company which has never gone out of business. Van Briggle continues its heritage of producing a wide variety of beautiful art pottery including bowls, vases, pitchers, figurines and more.
