Circa 1939: Modeled by Bill Barrisford for Homer Laughlin's participation in the Joint Exhibit of Capital and Labor for the New York 1939 Worlds Fair, the 2" George Washington carved bust exhibits a mastery of sculptural talent. Usually found dipped in the ivory vellum glaze, the unglazed bisque versions are reportedly much harder to find. The 2" tall individual creamer celebrating George Washington's 150th innaugural anniversary is nicely marked on the bottom "The American Potter, New York World's Fair 1939". Excellent condition, without damage or use.
