1990 Shearwater Art Pottery Large Cicada Cicala Wall Pocket Vase Exc Mississippi:
This excellent example of Shearwater Pottery comes from the estate of a major Midwestern American art pottery collector. The collection will be sold over the next few weeks. Please see my other sales for more Shearwater pieces from this estate.
Shearwater pottery is a family business founded in 1928 by Peter Anderson, with his parents George Walter Anderson, Sr. and Annette McConnell Anderson. The local Ocean Springs, Mississippi clays were used to make Shearwater wares in the 1930s, and the company continues to make pottery today.
This large cicada hanging wall pocket/vase is marked “Shearwater 1990” and measures 16” long. It is a very high gloss (which makes photos glarey--sorry). It features a lovely grey, tan, brown and black combination with yellow eyes. It’s in excellent condition--no cracks, chips, repairs or damage of any kind. Note the small spot of dark glaze in one of the eyes and the rougher texture of the eyes compared to the rest of the piece. These are factory and not damage. Even the two hanging holes are excellent.
