Sewer Pipe Folk Art Pottery Plaque of a Woman. Red clay, salt glazed and embellished by hand. The border was formed by pressing a thumb into the clay. all the way around. This piece was made "commercially" in that a mold was used, but there is no way to determine how many were made. This piece was enhanced by the application of a pebble on the neck to represent necklace bauble. A similar example, sans pebble, is illustrated in Sewer Pipe Folk Art by Jack Adamson. There is a small, impressed logo of a seated potter under the woman's chin, but it is very hard to see. 9" x 13"

All three are dated 1945. This one to Dorothy, the others hand signed to "Anna" and "Harvey" with same form and size. A worker making a group for his family? Or someone commissioned? Primitive named objects to be sold as Valentines? Interestingly, this form resembles a torso with a heart in the center. Likely Ohio origin. Collection Jim Linderman
