The company's products have a large fan base and are collected worldwide.Blue Mountain Pottery items feature a unique, trademarked glazing process known as "reflowing decorating." Two different liquid glazes, one light and one dark in colour, were applied.Blue Mountain Pottery is also marked by stickers and hangtags, the latter of which comes on non-dishware pieces such as animals.Continue Reading Stickers marking pieces such as decanters are blue and often have a white jug on them. Wandering around antiques centres and fairs, as is my want, my eye had been caught on a number of occasions by some rather good ceramic animals and vases decorated with an interesting vivid green, flowing glaze.Forms were lively, or strongly stylised, and the variety of dripping green tones in the glazes had caught my attention due to my interest in West German ‘Fat Lava’ ceramics of the 1960s-70s.During the firing process the glazes would run, creating streaking patterns unique to each piece.
Not being ‘my thing’, I promptly filed them in my mind for later research.
Early pieces, ( pre-1970 ) usually do not have stickers or raised " BMP 's " on the underside. Superb condition but noted for a glaze chip as shown in the picture at the bottom of the base.
They are also hollow with a heat vent hole as well. Take one or take them both, the first buyer gets the pamplet, the second buyer gets a photo copy of the pamplet.
It is also marked with an origin or date mark with the number `` 093 ``. This set is missing an intermediate duck of 9 `` high which is known to belong with this group but we do not have it.
Simply an outstanding piece of American art pottery. It is very hard to notice even from a short distance.
The wing on the large duck has minor chipping behind the wing which was not our doing. Measures 9 1/2 " high and 5 " wide at the widest section. Underside is heavily grounded to make the vase sit flat and true, much like Pottery from the Mougin Frères factory.
