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 11 oz. George Washington carved bust exhibits a mastery of sculptural talent. Dipped in the ever popular Homer Laughlin Century ivory vellum glaze, our founding father takes on a mellow lustre. The large 5" tall mug celebrating George Washington's 150th innaugural anniversary is nicely marked on the bottom "The American Potter, New York World's Fair 1939, Joint Exhibit of Capital and Labor". Excellent condition, without damage or use.
