Shearwater Pottery Decorated Dish Plate Bowl Birds 2nd Gen. Anderson Marked Exc For Sale
This excellent, early example of Shearwater Pottery comes from the estate of a Midwestern American art pottery collector; the collection will continue to be sold over the next few weeks.
The owner of this piece was told during a visit to Shearwater Pottery in the 1990s that it was made by a second generation Anderson family member. The dish is in excellent condition. It has a few small areas along the bottom of the outer edge where the ivory glaze is thin and has flaked off (see photos). No chips, repairs or other damage. It measures 8 and 1/4” in diameter and approximately 1 and 3/8” in height. Nice detail on this lovely, marked, and important piece.
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.

There has been some discussion of the age of this piece as it relates to it being a â€œsecond generation Andersonâ€� work. According to the Shearwater website, the generations of Anderson family members involved in Shearwater pottery are: George Walter/Annette; then Peter/Walter/Mac/Patricia; then Jim/Adele/Michael/Marjorie/Margaret; then Peter Wade/Beth Ashley/Chris Stebly. The owner of this piece was told by the business manager and family member Marjorie Anderson in the early 1990s that it was made by a â€œsecond generation Anderson.â€� If we take Marjorie to mean generations of family involved in Shearwater, then she was referring to the Peter/Walter/Mac/Patricia generation for this piece. If we take her to mean the second generation to make pottery themselves, then she was referring to the Jim/Adele/Michael/Marjorie/Margaret generation. It is unclear from her words and the piece itself. Perhaps the markâ€™s date range or clay color could help solve the mystery. I donâ€™t have that information and canâ€™t seem to find it online. I will share any information that folks can give me here on this page. Thank you.Jill
