This lovely Stahl piece is a true gem and quite personal due to the maker’s description. Made April 9, 1948, this piece comes from the hand of the great folk artist, Isaac Stahl, on a very windy and cold day (as written on the description found on the bottom). The bowl is earthy in tone, feel, and color. Dark brown hues slowly turn to light brown hues as one goes further from the center. On this background sit light-brownish yellow and black floral patterns. These patterns are matched in color by simple wavy lines that run parallel across the piece. The top portion is glazed, while the underside is not. This contrast gives the piece a natural feel. This is a must-have piece for the Stahl or folk art collector. The story of the Stahl's pottery begins in the mid-1930s when Thomas and Isaac Stahl decided to revive the pottery first established by their father Charles in the last decades of the 19th century. Today their name is synonymous with Pennsylvania-Dutch folk pottery.
