50+ year old 11.5″ X 14″ platter that is in a beautiful “Nutmeg” colored glaze, with a texture of linen over entire platter. Has drips of creamy white glaze on the back. Made in the old red-brown clay (see where signature goes thru glaze on the back to clay) with old signature by Lee McCarty, front (written in glaze) and back (Merigold, MS well known potter that is now deceased) in the 70′s. Somewhat asymmetrical sides and sides curve up. What is interesting is this piece has “TEXTURE” on it – almost like Lee took cloth and wrapped it around and you can see the texture from the cloth – look closely at closeup pics. Made out of brown MS clay, we always understood that it was likely from William Faulkner’s property in Oxford, MS. Formed and painted by Lee (or Pup). Double Signed and is a classic McCarty. All in fine shape – NO FLAWS at all – NO CHIPS, FLEA BITES, CRACKS, ETC. This can also be picked up in Jackson, MS FREE of charge. Thank you and please let me know if you have any questions.
