New? Beautiful Vintage Santa Anita Potteries 6pc Set Brown + Blue W/ Lazy Susan :
A New England estate sale find! A nice find of California mid century pottery that has become so collectible!Previous owner says it was her mothers wedding gift, and probably never used. I cant verify that but I can tell you its in really nice shape and we found it packed in the original box.Center round brown serving bowl, surrounded by 4 oblong blue bowls. All sit atop a plastic lazy susan tray. The tray has one slight discoloration spot that obviously wont be seen when presented with bowls atop the tray. The bottom has felt which looks like brand new and supports that claim that it was never used!No chips, cracks, or defects. The pieces are not marked in any way.The box is marked "Santa Anita Potteries, Los Angles 41, Calif." The 41 and the CALIF abbreviation all indicate this is a piece prior to the early 60's as thats when zip codes and the to digit state abbreviations came to be. According to WikiPedia, the Santa Anita Potteries only operated in the 40's and 50's so all that said, I believe this to be a 40's or 50's piece!Tray measures 14" in diameter and has ball bearing swivel, so it was a quality piece!It has a very mid-century appeal to it and would look great in most any decor.
