Just Art Pottery Auctions is pleased to have the opportunity to sell a nice five piece collection of Newcomb College pottery that is fresh to the market from an estate collection from
Louisiana. The collection includes three nice vases, a low bowl and a decorative creamer. The Newcomb pieces are being offered for auction in the sale ending March 6, 2011. Online bidding is currently available through auctions.justartpottery.com as well as Proxibid.com.
All five pieces are in mint condition without damage or repair and are being sold with no reserve. The collection offers examples from three of Newcomb’s more recognized decorators including Sadie Irvine, Anna Frances Simpson, and Henrietta Bailey.
Each piece of Newcomb pottery is hand decorated and artist initialed and represents the true sense of the arts and crafts movement. Most collectors consider Newcomb an investment quality art pottery.
Newcomb Pottery was unofficially started in 1894 when Mary Sheerer was brought from Cincinnati to teach pottery and china decoration at Newcomb College. The first public exhibition and sale of art pottery produced at the College occurred in 1896. Over the fifty years the Pottery was in existence over 60,000 hand decorated pieces of Newcomb were produced.
