Van Briggle 1905 Despondency, dark green mat, 12 5/8"
Item Details
Description
Rare and important 1905 Van Briggle Despondency vase done in a slightly crystalline deep green mat glaze. Incised marks include AA, Van Briggle 1905 and Roman numeral I. Height 12 5/8 inches. There is a 1/4 inch glaze nick at the base, otherwise excellent condition with crisp mold and excellent glaze. The consignor of this vase's Grandmother, Anne Stratton Gregory, was orphaned in 1912 and subsequently raised by Anne Gregory Van Briggle Ritter. The vase has never been offered for sale having been in the Gregory family since made. As a youth, the consignor witnessed this vase being pulled out of a straw filled barrel sent directly from Anne Gregory's estate to her Grandmother. Curiously, family oral history indicates that Artus Van Briggle created Despondency as a sort of self portrait, dealing with his unresolved feelings and concerns about the Tuberculosis that eventually took his life. The black and white photo shows Anne Stratton Gregory with Anne Gregory Van Briggle Ritter.
