My mother brought this basket girl home from the Brush Pottery where she worked before my brother was born in 1953. The pottery was just a short walk down the hill from our house. She is cold painted over glossy white glaze, so some of the paint is missing from the edge of her sun bonnet and ribbon decoration. She has blue eyes, blonde hair and pretty red smiling lips. The piece is marked with the flourishing Brush USA on the bottom as was the mark of the era. She is documented in The Guide to Brush - McCoy Pottery by Martha & Steve Sanford on page 110. There is overall crazing as consistent with age. My mom loved this piece and it was always on display until her death in 1978 when she died. At that time she was put in basement storage until now. She comes to you direct from my father's estate. She will take up 8 inches by 9.5 inches of your shelf space.
