Sewer Pipe Pottery Vessel Planter with Heart and Inscription Folk Art




Sewer Pipe Pottery Vessel Planter with Heart and Inscription.  A fairly large piece, and one of three known.  Two other examples by the same hand appear in Adamson's Ohio Sewer Pipe Folk art.  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.

Sewer Tile Pottery End of the Day Match Holder Tree Stump Ohio Antique





A rudimentary handmade sewer tile match holder.  Primitive.  It is surprising to see the company stamp "Armstrong Sewer Pipe Cincinnati" on the base.  Normally, identified pieces have a bit more style.  Unusual amateur adaption of a common sewer tile motif.
