Marked Shearwater Art Pottery Child’s Head Bust Gun Metal Glaze Mississippi Exc For Sale
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 bust depicting a child’s head by Shearwater has a dark gun
metal metallic glaze and is in excellent condition. It stands a little under 8 and ½” tall and is
5” across at the widest point of the base.
It is marked “Shear” on the narrow resting edge but I find no
“water.” The green felt cushioning
pieces may be over it, or they just stamped it partially in this narrow
area. The metallic glaze is excellent. The bust is in great condition-- no cracks, chips, repairs or damage of any kind. It’s a sweet piece.
