Handsome Hand Painted Signed M.a.hadley Pottery 11.25" Decoy Style Duck Planter:
Offered at sale is this truly handsome piece of pottery from the well-known M. A. Hadley Pottery Company located in Louisville, Kentucky! This company has been turning out quality pottery since 1940. The company was established by M. A. (Mary Alice) Hadley. Even today, the specific type of clay that is used in their pottery is from the Devonian geological period, making it over 250 million years in the making. Each piece is hand painted on unfired clay then coated with a white glaze and fired only once, making it stronger and, therefore, less likely to chip , craze or crack. The piece that is up for your consideration is a duck planter that measures 11 1/4" in length. It was hand painted using the company's signature "Hadley Blue" color along with a soft hunter green, beige and white and highlighted with black markings. This duck planter appears never to have been used, only displayed, and it is in mint condition! M.A. Hadley can be seen hand written into the bottom clay before it was fired. Thanks for viewing my sale, and be sure to look at the other great collectibles that I currently have up for offers.
