Circa 1939: Rare Unglazed Bisque VersionIt is here, on the rare unglazed example of embossed potters plaques that Bill Barrisford and Garvin Miller created for Homer Laughlin's participation in the Joint Exhibit of Capital and Labor for the New York 1939 Worlds Fair where we can see the talent, technique and artistry needed to carve such reliefs. The embossed plaques came in two scenes, "Thrower at the Wheel"and "Artist at the Wheel". Both scenes were most commonly produced in the original Vintage Fiesta turquoise glaze, a brown glaze, and vintage ivory vellum. This example of the "Thrower at the Wheel" embossed plaque, in the unglazed bisque form is reportedly one of less than a couple dozen known. Very nicely marked on the back "The American Potter, New York Worlds Fair, 1939, Joint Exhibit of Capital and Labor", exhibits mild toning from age. Measures 7 3/16" across.
