We’re still thinning our collections:
1) A real antique TECO 4” TILE in a Dard Hunter 9 3/4” square Legacy frame. Authentic debossed Teco mark on the back. Key slot for hanging. One of a kind these days.
2) A 4” x 5 ½” TECO DECORATION IN BISQUE for an Urn. Professionally framed under glass in a box with a green background. 7 3/8” x 9 3/8” x 1 1/4“. Wire hanger.
3) Bet you didn’t know Teco actually made a DOOR STOP. Near the end of their pottery production Teco tried various experiments to earn sales. Most of their experiments were various pottery glaze colors, paper weights, book ends, ash trays and landscape tiles. But Teco also introduced garden pottery including bird baths, urns, vases and jardinières, oil Jars, fountain sculptures and even crematory urns. However their Door Stop was perhaps the most unusual. This one is dated 1925! Note the various flower blossom colors which are quite vivid for a Teco glaze. 6” in diameter x 4 1/4” H, it’s quite heavy at about 8 pounds. When they were new they were very popular and found all over the Crystal Lake IL area which was home to Teco’s American Terra Cotta & Ceramic Company.
4) A MINT original ART POTTERY OF THE PRAIRIE SCHOOL Poster announcing the seminal TECO Pottery Exhibit at the Erie Art Museum 1989. Printed on acid-free paper and very nicely matted and framed in a metal gold colored frame 28 1/4” x 20 3/4” which includes a hanging wire. These Teco art pottery posters are fairly rare and a beautifully framed one even more so. A great addition to a Teco pottery collection and prefect décor for your Mission, Arts & Crafts or Bungalow interior.
