Edwin Meaders grape pitcher-southern folk pottery I am selling my matte finish, mint. alkaline green, almost 9 inch tall Edwin Meaders grape pitcher. The raised grapes and leaves, the green finish, the fabulous runs, and the fact that it was made in 1986, makes this piece a fabulous find. Very early style!I will ship for only $30. It will be insured also..included in shipping by UPS. Thanks for looking at my pottery. Check out my other sales!On May-06-13 at 19:36:29 PDT, seller added the following information:
I wanted to mention that on one side of the spout, near the edge, there is a place that could appear to be a crack or repair. I had it looked at and was told that it was a glaze variation, probably where Edwin, himself, touched up the bend in the spout, while turning it.. It does not extend to the edge, and no signs on inside. The original glaze is completely over place. To my eyes, it looks like what I have seen many times..a slight stress streak, created with the pushing of the clay, and completely glazed over.It is a great early piece with an imperfection here and there. But...I wanted you to know.

Wanted to follow up with the fact that I went to take this piece to a professional restorer this morning. He examined it extensively. He replied, " there is no repair or crack to this piece. It is simply beautiful. There are similar areas on the other side of the spout where the potter shaped the spout." He gave it a perfect "no repair or cracked" report. That makes my day....Now...feel free to offer as you wish and thanks>
