Vintage Studio Pottery Oval Platter Description and Item Information Up for sale is this large, vintage studio art pottery platter, dish, or shallow bowl. Please excuse the glare in the photos. This oval piece is approximately 2 1/4 inches tall; it is about 20 3/4 inches long by 15 inches wide (sunglasses for scale only).
Unpacked, it weighs about 8 pounds. This wonderful piece has a fish motif, executed in sgraffito and multicolored glazes. The base is unglazed rusty buff clay. This would be a nice addition to a collection of vintage studio ceramics.
Identification This vintage piece is unsigned. Based on the decoration style and glazes, it is attributed to the Pond Farm Pottery near Guerneville, California (north of San Francisco). The exact artist is not known; perhaps it was made by a student of Marguerite Wildenhain.
This piece was acquired in northern California. Condition The platter looks great overall, with no cracks or post-production chips.
The unglazed base has light wear. As made, the unglazed base has some small divot areas where it looks like it stuck to the kiln; there also are some small, flat, extra clay bits fused beneath.
Slight asymmetry, small glazed-over indents, and glaze application variations are as made. Payments must be received within three days of the end of the listing, unless prior arrangements have been made. Some countries have restrictions or prohibitions on certain classes of merchandise.
