- Pattern: U P- 43
- Made in USA
- Vintage: 1940’s – 1950’s
- Details: This is such a lovely pedestal planter and in absolutely perfect condition! The pattern is made up of swirls all around the piece with small blocks that form the pedestal. It is pink with white drip glaze and the glaze drips down the swirls forming a very charming design. It is an oval shaped vase and finished with a high shine glaze. It is stamped on the clay with mold (mould) number: “U P-1 43” on one side and “USA” on the other. We are convinced this is American Bisque Pottery due to the markings plus their unique large wedge shapes on the bottom. This is a heavy piece for its size, our price already includes the ever increasing shipping fees, so the price you see is the price you pay. American Bisque pieces are hard to find, many may sell them but rarely identify them as American Bisque. There is no drainage hole so perfect used as a cachepot. Great gift for an American pottery collector or better yet, a great find for an American Bisque collector! Would look lovely as an accent / decor piece in the home.

American Bisque Pottery opened for business in 1919, in Williamstown West Virginia, at the end of WWI. In 1922, B.E. Allen purchased the business and it remained in the family until closing. At first the company made Kewpie doll heads, the Allen family expanded into planters, vases, bowls, serving dishes, ashtrays, and lamps but they are best known for their cookie jars. They faced some disasters in their time, in 1937 the plant was flooded, the family reopened, only to be struck by fire and completely destroyed in 1945. Market decline forced them to sell 1982. Bipin Mizra purchased the plant and re-named it American China Company making airline chinaware. However in 1983 that company closed as well.
