In 1948, Jane and Max Howell began The Century House as a pottery studio in an old, circa 1850s sandstone building on Madison’s west side. They specialized in producing personalized dishes, wedding plates, coffee mugs and baby sets. For 15 years they created and designed special pieces for their loyal customers.

In the early 60s growth and expansion led Max and Jane to offer a wider variety of gifts, artwork, and home accessories. Slowly they began to use imported Scandinavian tables and sideboards to display their products. This furniture found its own market in a customer base that appreciated quality and unique, contemporary design. Their path was clear, and a larger commitment to the Scandinavian furniture industry was born.

This is a wonderful example of a Century House Pottery trinket tray from 1953. Very unusual and sure to please any finicky collector. This is a cute artist depiction of a squirrel or skunk, since they made a lot of childrens' items - then I would lean more towards a squirrel. This displays well from all angles. Perfect decorator piece.

Exceptional trinket tray in that it has no damage, no repairs, no cracks, no scratches, and free from crazing. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process including glaze misses and glaze pops. I cannot detect any repairs or modifications. Dimensions are below.

Authentic Century House Pottery Pottery.
