Van Briggle Pottery Values – Pricing Experience

I’m able to provide you with pricing assistance based on the following information:

  • I was a partner in a major estate liquidation business for four years and during this time I’ve been involved in pricing hundreds of thousands of items.
  • I’ve sold antiques and collectibles at area flea markets for several years.
  • I have friends who’ve been collectors for well over forty years and I rely on them for assistance when needed.
  • My friends and I visit area flea markets, antique shows, and estate sales to keep current on pricing and pricing trends.
  • I have a thorough understanding of the psychology of pricing and what the market will bear as it relates to pricing.

Before asking my advice on pricing, just remember that any given price is simply an educated guess based on my experience, that of others more knowledgeable than me, and the research I do when required. I’m not a certified appraiser as I feel it would be more of a hinder than a value in helping others who wish to sell one piece of Van Briggle or an entire collection.

  1. I have friends visiting COS from WA state, and we are looking for the van briggle pottery factory or store. Does it still exist? Where is it located? phone number and address? Thank you

  2. Van Briggle is located at 1024 S. Tejon Street. (719) 633-7729

    From the old roundhouse go east on Hwy 24 and turn right on Tejon St. We are on the right, just after the railroad bridge, and before you get to I-25.

    Look forward to seeing you!

  3. I have a pot I believe is Artis Vanbriggle’s piece he made on the wheel .It looks to be a milk pitcher. It is brown in an early exerimental glaze. It also has some markings inside. An s and some dots, or something. I’m not sure what they may be. If you would like I can send you a picture of it.

  4. I have a pitcher and a set of glasses that my mother-in-law gave to us. The straight up pottery glasses are in a carry holder. Primary colors are brown and some green on the top of the glass. Any idea if there is any value in this?

  5. The Elks Lodge #575 has a Van Briggle fireplace surround from 1913 in near perfect condition. How do I document this in the Van Briggle archives?

  6. I have an 11″ Black Glaze Pitcher Vase. It is thought to be Van Briggle but it does not have the usual signature. It has a date of 1949 and the name Dayden in a similar script. Could this be a rare piece?

  7. For many years I have thought a black 7 1/2″ tall x 3 1/4″ wide 7 seven side vase was made by Pueblo Indians in New Mexico. The piece was my grandmother’s and my grandfather worked for the US GOA in New Mexico. The style has never impressed me as having being a Native piece. The vase is marked with a double A and dated 1917, but “Van Briggle” does not appear on the piece.

    Any thoughts?

    Thank you for any guidance you can provide.
