With art deco styling, this matte green McCoy bowl from 1962 could be a decorator's dream. The versatility due to its 8.75 inch mouth and 4 inch base makes it a highly desirable shape. This piece is listed on page 246 of Sanford's Guide to McCoy Pottery. The interior has three groups of raised lines. The exterior has three faux columns ending in rectangular feet. There is a manufacturing bubble on the rim; a tiny raised bump on one 'leg'; another 'leg' has a manufacturer's flaw about 3/4 inch: in other words, this is an imperfect piece. The Vesta line was made for floral shops, so imperfections were acceptable for the most part. I grew up in Roseville, Ohio, home of the Brush and McCoy Potteries and many flawed pieces of pottery. It was an imperfect process. If you cannot accept the small imperfections, this is not the piece for you.
