- Vintage item from the 1970s
- Materials: pottery, glaze The vintage mermaid art pottery was handmade, designed, conceptualized and signed by artist, Marge, in Shreveport, Louisiana. The year was 1971. As you look at the enclosed, one of a kind piece the mermaid encircles the incised, covered bowl. The front shows a cut out bust line and the back shows an incision for the mermaid’s tail. The top shows long flowing hair as though the hair flows through water. It is a conversation piece, an exquisite piece and one that any pottery lover would appreciate. I have taken great care of the piece since it was given to me by my best friend for my birthday. There is a white mark on the front as you can see from the close up photograph. The piece measures approximately 5″ x 5″ and would look great in any room with cream, brown or grey. The piece is not recommended for food or beverage.
