Van Briggle is an American pottery firm established by Artus Van Briggle, a Dutchman with great success as a painter, who turned his attention to ceramics. Initially he worked for Rookwood, but moved to Colorado Springs in 1899 where he began his own pottery production.
Though he died in 1904 of tuberculosis, his wife continued the business until around 1912 after which non-family members operated the firm and which has ceased operations according to Real Or Repro.
Van Briggle's pottery earned awards and broad acceptance, especially with its organic forms and matte glazes. Its success has attracted the attention of counterfeiters, but there is much information available to educate collectors on authenticity.
