[15-0403]

The Newark Museum is premiering Dallas'Gustav Stickley exhibition--the first really comprehensive exhibition on this great figure ever done (and he lived in NJ, too). Just as a tease, I am going to have two pieces of arts and crafts silver in a little museum-focus nook by the entrance to the show. I'll have our great Horace Potter box from the 1900s, and a lovely Kalo bowl from the 1910s. It'll give a silver excuse for y'all to come to Newark and see stuff.

Ulysses -- I've seen the Potter box (it's great). Which Kalo bowl is it?

Here's the Kalo bowl--5 1/4"H x 8 1/4"Di.
It has the Chicago and NY mark in it. I bought it in 1983, because I thought it's what our founder, John Cotton Dana, and our founding trustee, Louis Bamberger, would have bought at the Kalo outlet shop in NY.

Lovely...could you post a pic of Potter, too? (And then say that three times fast!)

Gee, didn't I post this? Well, here you go. It's a beauty--and on display here until January 2, 2011. The mate to it belongs to the Brooklyn Museum--originally a pendant pair...

I love the Potter box. Is it marked POTTER STUDIO? Any idea as to why the pair was separated?

It is marked POTTER STUDIO.
The pair was split because neither museum wanted both of them, and they were relatively expensive. This was, to both curators involved, a clear example of a pair that didn't matter as a pair--and of course, both are safely in museums and thus aren't really broken up...if anyone wants both of them in a show some day...

Ulysses -- Your Potter box is a knockout. These are getting really hard to find. An H. E. Potter jeweled casket recently sold at Bonhams:

Your Kalo bowl is a classic too. Kalo also made this tall bowl with U-shaped panels on the sides:
