Camark Pottery started in 1924 in Camden, Arkansas. Jack Carnes founded the firm and made many types of glazes and wares. John Lessell became director of Camark Pottery in 1926 and developed lines of art pottery similar to those he produced for Weller and Owens. He died shortly after the start of production at the plant in Camden, Arkansas. The company was bought by Mary Daniel. Production was halted in 1983.
This Bloodhound/Setter dog figurine really needs no explanation, the photos fully explain his actions. Produced during the mid-century period of the pottery the figure is done in a medium blue glaze. The dog measures 2 1/2" in height, 4 1/2" in length and still maintains the original paper sticker showing the name "Pointer". There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint and guaranteed to make you smile every time you look at him.
