A pink matte glazed vase with elegantly flared banded rim and base, and two low-set strap handles from Abingdon Pottery. The vase measures 9 1/2" high and 6 1/4" wide at the rim. The bottom is impressed with the mold number "911" and stamped "Abington U.S.A." The condition is very good.
In 1908, Raymond E. Bidwell established the Abingdon Sanitary Manufacturing Company in Abingdon, Illinois, producing vitreous china plumbing fixtures. To stay afloat during the great depression, Abingdon started producing art pottery from 1934 until reverting back to making plumbing fixtures exclusively in 1950.
