Broadmoor Spider Web Vase ~ Milgrim

no.013: 2009-07-15

The white clay body on this attractive Broadmoor-Denver spider web vase shows through just enough to frame out and display a nice matte green glaze. This green has only been found on Denver pots so far.

The shape of the vase is similar to Broadmoor's much more common (and relatively ugly) pillow vase. We have several pillow vases and two of these spider web vases with Denver marks only.

The bottom of our second vase has just about everything going for it: an almost complete "clay I am" sticker, a nearly untouched lacquer finish (often missing) and the hard to find incised  "Milgrim" we sometimes find on Denver pieces. Who is "Milgrim"?

Please contact us if you have insights on this or other topics. Thank you.
