Shearwater Art Pottery Black Cream Vase By Walter Anderson Mississippi Marked For Sale
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 Walter Anderson. It was later included
in the first exhibit of Southern art pottery held in the US—the blue sticker
denotes this. I will include a
high-quality color photocopy of the exhibit brochure with the piece. The vase itself is in excellent
condition. It has a few small areas
along the bottom edge of the cream glaze where it is thin and has flaked off,
and one tiny chip to the bottom of the sitting edge that is 3/8” by 1/8” (not sure it's factory or not; see
photos of these). It has no repairs or
other damage. It measures 6” tall and
approximately 8 and ½” in width. Note the glare on some photos--these are inevitable with a shiny glaze and are not imperfections. Nice to
see the excellent workmanship on this appealing, marked 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.
