There are two circa the late 1940s, Royal Hickman fish on a wave vase from his Tampa, Florida studio. They are identical but are selling separately. Both are in near mint vintage condition. Each measures approximately eight inches at the widest point and nine and one-quarter inches tall. Please indicate the top or bottom one from the last photograph when ordering.
First, as a metal sculptor and potter in California, then on to Illinois, Royal Hickman worked for Haeger until 1944 but continued to contribute additional designs to the firm during the 1950s on a freelance basis. He operated art pottery studios in Tennessee and Florida in the '40s and '50s. Hickman also designed crystal animal figurines for the Heisey Glass Company.
