Up for sale here is a vintage mid century modern studio art pottery figural face w/ carved snake body and applied head orb by Wellington, Kansas potter J. This beautiful wheel thrown cabinet/shelf piece is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. A truly unique example of Barker's early work.
It does have some adhesive residue on the bottom where it appears it may have been mounted to a base at some point. I was able to flake some of the adhesive off with my fingernail. I'm certain the rest will come off if one carefully works at it. It is scratch signed on the bottom edge "BARKER'77". Measures 7 1/4" wide x 5 1/2" deep x 5 1/4 high.
