This beautiful swirl clay pot was made by Evans Pottery in Dexter, Missouri in the 1940s. It is not marked, and although it looks more like Niloak Mission Swirl, I am sure it is Evans. I acquired this from my very dear friend Alice Creach (now deceased) who was an antique dealer at The Lake of The Ozarks from the 1940s into the 1980s. She bought this piece from the pottery in Dexter in the 1940s. She also gave me copies of the newspaper article, shown in the picture. The beautiful swirl pot in shades of turquoise, brown and cream is just 4" tall by 3 1/2" in diameter. It has no chips or cracks. A copy of the article comes with the pot.
