L276 RARE 1911 BUFFALO POTTERY BLUE WILLOW LARGE TEAPOT
We are pleased to offer this next lot of Valuable original antique 1900s Buffalo Pottery Blue Willow items, which are regarded as the finest deep rich Cobalt examples of its era, and perhaps of ALL TIME. This lot contains an absolutely spectacular and RARE, properly stamped 1911, largest square teapot offered by Buffalo at 9.75" x 5.5" tall, in the traditional 3 on the bridge / 1 in the boat Spode pattern, with a gorgeous enhanced Ruyi Lappet border! This one of a kind teapot is listed as form #91 in the 1905 Buffalo Pottery booklet, and is in EXC + condition. This Buffalo treasure is a must for your collection. The Larkin Soap Company needed a novel idea to boost soap sales in 1901, so company founders took a gamble and put certificates of redemption on soap packages, promising soap dishes in return for the coupons. The idea caught fire and the premium converted a multitude of soap buyers. What attracted fans was the design and quality of the pottery. Using his ingenuity, ceramics engineer William Rea went beyond his Larkin commission, pioneering a clay composition that still sends the pulses of antique hunters soaring. Rea's clay, an olive green mix that produced astonishing gradations of color in the finished product was unlike any existing pottery designs on the market. As the soap dish giveaway wound down, the BUFFALO POTTERY Company became the sole distributor of the newly-dubbed Deldare Ware in 1903. One of the other GREAT ACHIEVEMENTS of Buffalo Pottery was the fact that it was the very FIRST American producer of Willow ware (both blue & gaudy) ca. 1905, with its base cobalt richer than any of the imported English or European wares, making it a valuable and highly sought after collectible! Drawing upon the success of the original Blue Willow pattern, the BUFFALO CHINA Co. reintroduced the line between 1964 and ~ 1984, but it is far less valuable than the early 1900s pottings.
