Gonder pottery was produced in the same area of Ohio as all the well known pottery, such as Weller, Shawnee, Hull, McCoy and Roseville. Gonder was shipped all over the U. S. and Canada but did not have the huge volume like the other potteries.
The factory Gonder Ceramic Arts, Inc. was in business between 1941 and 1957 and was run by Lawton Gonder. From day one he referred to his business as ceramic art, and in fact, he employed the best sculptors and artists in the country for his designs and molds. His focus was the ceramics and glazes, not running the business.
Very rare Gonder pottery from the Ceramic Arts line. This piece depicts an Hawaiian woman carrying two buckets on her shoulders. The color is a deep ox blood red. It's from'1950'. It's a free standing piece if you wish to display on a table top. There are two buckets, each big enough for small succulents.
13" tall x 10" wide x almost 5" deep Condition is very good.
