Here's a bold piece, made by Stangl in the 1930's. Two architectural handles punctuate the strong Art Deco form—which further pops with a glazing of vivid orange.
Johann Stangl worked for Fulper Pottery (in Flemington, NJ) from 1910. At the time, the company was known for its pricey Arts & Crafts "studio" ceramics—art quality pieces, tastefully designed and laboriously hand-crafted. Johann Stangl became president of the company in 1926 and, three years later, changed the company's name to Stangl Pottery. Johann embraced the new Art Deco movement, and re-calibrated the company away from expensive, low-volume studio pieces and toward popular-priced, high-volume production which would meet the needs of a growing middle-class, post War market.
The piece above would surely make a statement in any type of interior: Late-Victorian, Arts & Crafts, Art Deco, Modernist or 70's Swing. Please click on the photo above to learn more about it.
