A handsome Nemadji Pottery vase with maker's mark on bottom for your blooms and fronds (or pencils and paintbrushes in the studio). Marbled brown and black pattern; exterior is not glazed and interior is lightly glazed.

Quick history lesson:

Nemadji pottery, or "Indian Pottery" was made in the Arrowhead region of Minnesota starting in the 1920s. While never actually made by American Indians, it was a style of pottery created to be reminiscent of the vessels they made long ago with clay from the Nemadji river. The distinctive marbleized pattern was hand painted to look like the real thing and these decorative pieces were marketed for the tourist trade. No two are exactly alike, which makes it fun to collect.
