Please read Jack’s email wanting to know more about the La Solana company history. I gave him what little information I have, but I haven’t been able to discover very much about this company. If you can provide more info, please email me. Thanks a bunch!

La Solana turquoise lidded skillet

This large heavy turquoise pottery skillet (also called a lidded casserole) is unmarked, but has the lines, style, artistry, beauty, color, and soft semi-matte glaze of the La Solana pieces produced in Scottsdale, AZ during the 1950's-1960's. (It also matches our 6" diameter individual casserole listed immediately below that IS marked!) Apparently many, if not most, La Solana pieces are unmarked, and originally carried paper stickers like the one pictured above. This is an impressively sized piece, being 9" in diameter at its top, nearly 13" across at its hollow handle, 7" in diameter at its unglazed base ring, and 3" tall, rising to 5-1/2" tall with lid. The underside of the lid has an unglazed 7-3/4" diameter ring that fits into the skillet. Both the skillet and its lid are in perfect condition, with no chips, cracks, crazing, or any signs of use whatsoever. I’ve never seen such a soft marshmallow-looking finish that just begs to be touched! Both unglazed rings show some age discoloration. There are a couple of glaze slips at the skillet rim, a flyspeck on the inner handle rim, and a couple more on the lid, plus one tiny scratch. According to the old “Solana-ware” ad pictured above, these pieces can be used in the oven, but they’re so beautiful I’d personally use them only for serving! (Click on picture for more images.)

La Solana turquoise individual casserole

This little turquoise individual casserole is definitely one of the beautiful La Solana pieces produced in Scottsdale, AZ during the 1950's-1960's because it carries their name on the bottom. It is 6" in diameter at its top, 8-1/4" across to the tip of its hollow handle, 4-3/4" in diameter at its unglazed base ring, and a scant 1-1/2" tall. Its soft semi-matte glaze finish is the hallmark of La Solana pottery, as well as its sleek artistic lines. It is in near perfect condition, with no chips, cracks, or any signs of use, although the unglazed base ring shows age discoloration and there is very slight discoloration at several places on the interior top rim.

La Solana yellow lidded ramekin

This is a lidded ramekin in La Solana’s yellow color, which is really more of a harvest gold. The individual sized ramekin is 5-1/2" in diameter at its top, 8-1/8" across to the tip of its handle, 4" in diameter at its unglazed base ring, and 2-1/2" tall. Unlike the two turquoise pieces listed above, the handle on this one is not hollow. When lidded, the piece stands 4" tall to the top of its lid knob. The underside of the lid has an unglazed 4-3/4" diameter ring that fits into the ramekin, whose bottom carries the La Solana mark and another mark in a circle that I can’t make out. I thought it might be a “2", but the ramekin holds approximately 2-1/2 cups, just the perfect size for serving chili or French onion soup. Perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or crazing. The unglazed bottom rings show some age discoloration. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

La Solana small yellow lidded ramekin

This little yellow La Solana lidded ramekin is just like the one listed immediately above except that this one is the “baby bear” size. Ramekin is 4-1/4" in diameter at its top, 6-1/2" across to the tip of its handle, 2-1/2" in diameter at its unglazed base ring, and 2-1/4" tall. Again the handle is not hollow. When lidded, the piece stands 3-3/8" tall to the top of its lid knob. The underside of the lid has an unglazed 3-5/8" diameter ring that fits into the ramekin, whose bottom carries the La Solana mark and either an “L” or a “1” in a circle, although the ramekin holds approximately 1-1/2 cups. Perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or crazing. There’s a flyspeck under the glaze on the lid top and another, also under the glaze, toward the exterior bottom. The unglazed bottom rings show some age discoloration. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

La Solana green lidded ramekin

This is a lidded ramekin in La Solana’s green color that softly shades to a yellow tone, particularly on the handle and on the edge of the lid knob. It is 5-1/2" in diameter at its top, 8-1/8" across to the tip of its handle, 4" in diameter at its unglazed base ring, and 2-1/2" tall. Like its yellow counterpart listed above, the handle on this one is solid. When lidded, the piece stands 4" tall to the top of its lid knob. The underside of the lid has an unglazed 4-3/4" diameter ring that fits into the ramekin, whose bottom carries the La Solana mark and a “2,” but the ramekin holds approximately 2-1/2 cups, just the perfect size for serving chili or French onion soup. Perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or crazing. The unglazed bottom rings show some age discoloration. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

La Solana small green lidded ramekin

This little green La Solana lidded ramekin has really interesting glaze patterns. The green color softly shades to a yellow tone, particularly on the handle, the rims of both the ramekin and lid, and the edge of the lid knob. The lid is a slightly darker shade of green and attractively speckled like a bird’s egg. Ramekin is 4-1/4" in diameter at its top, 6-1/2" across to the tip of its handle, 2-1/2" in diameter at its unglazed base ring, and 2-1/4" tall. Like its yellow counterpart immediately above, its handle is solid. When lidded, the piece stands 3-3/8" tall to the top of its lid knob. The underside of the lid has an unglazed 3-5/8" diameter ring that fits into the ramekin, whose bottom carries the La Solana mark and either an “L” or a “1” in a circle, although the ramekin holds approximately 1-1/2 cups. Perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or crazing. The unglazed bottom rings show some age discoloration. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

La Solana small tan/mauve ramekin

This is a little tan/mauve La Solana unlidded ramekin whose size is 4-1/8" in diameter at its top, 6-1/2" across to the tip of its hollow handle, 2-1/2" in diameter at its unglazed base ring, and 2-1/4" tall. It is different from all other La Solana pieces I’ve ever seen in two respects: the handle has a base, giving the handle an applied appearance, and if you look closely, the glaze has a slight “drippy” design that looks for all the world like the mountain ranges in the Scottsdale, AZ area! We have two of these unique ramekins, and price is for each. Both are in perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or crazing. The unglazed bottom rings, of course, show age discoloration.(Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Price: $20.00 each + s/h and insurance

La Solana tan/mauve cookie jar / bean pot

This beautifully understated cookie jar / bean pot is one of the lovely La Solana pottery pieces produced in Scottsdale, AZ during the 1950's-1960's. In my opinion, it’s the premier example of La Solana’s characteristic style, artistry and charm. In full light, the soft semi-matte glaze finish is a warm tan color; in muted light it has a definite mauve cast to it. Slightly beehive in shape, the pot measures 7-1/4" in diameter at its bottom, slopes upward to its 5-3/4" diameter top, and is 7-1/2" across at its diagonal knob handles. It is 5-1/2" tall, rising to 7" tall to the top of its lid knob when lidded. The underside of the lid has an unglazed 4-3/4" diameter ring that fits into the pot, whose bottom features a 6-3/8" unglazed base ring. The La Solana incising on the bottom became so full of glaze when fired that it’s virtually unreadable. Perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or crazing. One tiny flyspeck on the lid and slight roughness around the edge of the lid’s 1"-diameter knob. The pot’s unglazed bottom ring shows age discoloration. (Click on picture for more images.)

La Solana yellow lidded sugar bowl

Is this the most interestingly shaped sugar bowl you’ve ever seen or what?? Looks more like a lidded coffee mug, and certainly could be used as such, but indeed it’s La Solana’s version of a lidded sugar bowl! This one is in yellow and stands 4" tall at the front of its 2-1/2" diameter sloping mouth, 3-3/4" at the back thereof, and 5" when lidded. The bowl is 4-1/4" across at the widest point of the angled side handle and the base is 3-1/8" in diameter. The lid bottom has an unglazed 2" diameter ring that fits into the bowl. The lid knob is angled to complement (or offset) the angle of the bowl’s mouth, depending on which display look you prefer. The bowl bottom has the characteristic unglazed base ring, and again the La Solana incising became so full of glaze when fired that it’s virtually unreadable.  Near perfect condition, with no nicks, chips, cracks, crazing, or any sign of usage. One edge of the lid knob has a fleabite that may be a glaze pop. Both unglazed base rings show age discoloration. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

La Solana turquoise pottery cruet

This sleek turquoise pottery cruet/condiment bottle is unmarked, but has the lines, style, artistry, beauty, color, and soft semi-matte glaze of La Solana pieces produced in Scottsdale, AZ during the 1950's-1960's. It stands 7-1/4" at the top of its lovely sloping oval mouth and 6-3/8" at the bottom thereof. It is in perfect condition, with no chips, cracks, or any signs of use. Even the unglazed 2-1/4" diameter base shows very little age discoloration. Makes a lovely bud vase, too! If you’re new to La Solana, this would be the perfect piece with which to inexpensively start your collection. But I warn you, this beautiful artistic pottery is addictive!

La Solana turquoise pottery spoon rest

This 4-3/4" x 8" turquoise pottery triple spoon rest is unmarked, but has the lines, style, artistry, beauty, color, and soft semi-matte glaze of La Solana pieces produced in Scottsdale, AZ during the 1950's-1960's.  It is in perfect condition, with no chips, cracks, or any signs of use. Even the three unglazed egg-shaped portions on the bottom that are the bottoms of the three spoon indentations show very little age discoloration. You almost never find a La Solana spoon rest for sale, so this makes a unique addition to your collection. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.
