Edwin Meaders Georgia Pottery Grape-decorated Cobalt Blue Pitcher 1988 For Sale

Edwin Meaders Georgia Pottery Grape-decorated Cobalt Blue Pitcher 1988

Edwin Meaders (born 1921) is one of the well-known sons of the likewise well-known Georgia potters Cheever and Arie Meaders. His brother Lanier Meaders was one of the South’s most famous face jug makers, and his brothers John and Reggie Meaders made highly collectible pottery as well. Edwin learned his craft at an early age in the family shop in the Mossy Creek area of White County , Georgia, built his own kiln in the 1960’s, and became a full-time potter upon his retirement around 1980. He is famous for his pottery roosters and his grape-decorated pitchers. In Nancy Sweezy’s popular book “Raised in Clay”, she included a great quote of Edwins’s pertaining to the grape designs (page 104): “If people want the grape stuff, I make it. Some want plain stuff – some want the roosters. I like to see people get what they want. If I’m just making plain stuff, I can make twenty a day. If I’m making with the grapes, I can make six of them pieces by working all day long. It takes longer to roll them grapes, cut the leaves, than it does to turn them (i.e. than it does to turn the pitchers on the potter’s wheel).”

Offered at sale is a beautiful example of an Edwin Meaders cobalt blue pitcher with grape decoration. The cobalt blue of the pitcher is a backdrop for the deeper blue color of the grapes themselves, with the emerald green heart-shaped leaves providing a nice contrast. The strong flat handle has a tapered end. There is a drip of the green glaze flowing down from one of the grape leaves. The pitcher is signed on its base in incised script: Edwin Meaders 6-10-88. It stands 9 ¼ inches tall and is in excellent original condition with no cracks, chips, or fractures. Please note that the bright areas and bright spots in the photos are reflections of the sunlight off the glossy cobalt glaze and are not present on the piece itself. Offered with – a nice opportunity to acquire a piece of Mr. Meaders’ popular “grape stuff”.

There will be a $14 charge for fully insured shipping by either USPS or UPS, and the pitcher will be carefully bubble-wrapped and double-boxed to ensure safe arrival. I will contact the winning buyer by e-mail shortly after the conclusion of the sale. Good luck!
