Circa: 1960
Manufacturer: David Gil, Cooperative Design, Bennington Potters Vermont

Here is a whimsical modern stoneware piece from the late David Gil at Bennington Potters in Vermont. started by David Gil in 1948. It is from the the post-1960 time period when Gil began to use the words Bennington Potters on pieces after having used a transition mark which included both the words Design Cooperative and Bennington Vermont.

This fluted 9 5/8 inch diameter plate was advertised in the 1964 catalogue as B 1653 and titled "Daisies", an ashtray which could also be hung on the wall as a plaque as it had a built-in wire on the back. Its original 1964 price was $5.00.

It features six stylized daisies. The stems, leaves, and petals are incised. The 1964 ad states the this piece was available in white or turquoise with colored accents. The glaze I believe is an early white one as it is quite high gloss with some mottling in the glaze giving the color depth. The steams and leaves have been accented in a dark olive green and the flowers are accented in dark brown.

I believe that this series of ashtrays 1650-1655 was designed by David Gil's first wife Gloria Gil, who also designed the 1553 Fighting Cock tile. and perhaps all the tiles in that series.

The back of the plate/plaque is missing the wire hanger which was embedded in the pottery. It is signed 1653 and has the spark mark on the forearm. I would guess it is from the 1960-1964 period. It is in excellent condition.

Bennington Potters are among the few American studio potteries that turned into production potteries in the midcentury. It evolved into a co-operative of different art potters.

After 1960, they made their bread and butter by making gorgeous modern styled dinnerware that was distributed throughout the US and sold in fine department stores.
