Stangl Art Deco Urn with Foliate Handles and Deep Orange Glazing (LEO Design)

For the next several days, we'll be sharing a few of our favorite pieces of sunny, orange pottery.  Nothing chases away the Winter Blues quite as well as a sideboard full or radiating orange ceramics!

Sunny orange pottery was not only to be found on the other side of the Atlantic.  The Thirties Art Deco urn, shown above, was made by Stangl in Flemington, New Jersey.  The classic urn form, dressed with two drooping, foliate handles, combines Classicism with strong Deco style.  The deep orange glazing adds additional weight to the piece—which will create a strong statement wherever it is displayed.  Click on the photo above to learn more about it.

More orange-glazed vintage pottery tomorrow and in the days to come.
