Just Art Pottery New Arrivals

It’s that time of the year again where it seems all any of us do is scramble to make every moment count during the holidays.  One of the best things about this time of year is decorating.  Christmas trees, the festive dinnerware and of course, the ribbons, bells and mistletoe – it’s all part of the presentation.  That said, part of my efforts include bringing some of my most prized art pottery pieces down from the top shelves and putting them front and center.  I incorporate some of my cherished George Ohr pottery pieces into my mantelpiece that’s draped with pine and tiny white lights.   Of course, McCoy Pottery is where it all began for me; my kitchen is home to those whimsical pieces I’m so drawn to.

If you’re considering adding some new pieces to your own collection, you should visit our New Arrivals page.  There’s a nice representation from many of the well known American art potteries.  For instance, there’s an Ephraim Faience Pottery Day Lily Vase that’s tall and regal – and would make a beautiful centerpiece on your dining table.  Add a festive touch by incorporating red holly – the reds would be striking against the deep green glaze.  The vase is in mint condition and measures 12” tall and 5” wide.  There were only 85 of these Ephraim Faience Pottery vases made and it was retired in 2002.

Speaking of red, there is a Rookwood Pottery 1937 Blood Red vase that’s been recently added.  The glossy finish is just what’s needed to bring out the intricate detailing in the design.  It too is in mint condition and would coordinate beautifully with your other holiday collections.  The Rookwood vase is 6 ¾” in height and is 3” at its widest.  Right now, there is a matching vase if you’d like to pair them off on either side of your dining table or mantelpiece.

This is just a small sample of what’s available right now.  Allow your creativity to lead the way as you set out to make your home warm and inviting for all of your guests and family as you celebrate the best time of the year.

Also, if you’re considering giving art pottery as a gift, let us know when you order it and odds are, we can ship it to the recipient.  This is a good idea if time is short, but you want to be sure your gift arrives on time.  Contact us via email or give us a call at 309-690-7966 to discuss.
