McCoy : Parrot Planter : Vintage : Leslie Cope

Let me introduce myself. My name is Margo Flaherty and I am Leslie Cope's niece. My mother, Joan, was Leslie's sister. Many of you know that Leslie and his father, Sidney, (my grandfather) were the designers for McCoy pottery from the early 1930s until 1966. My grandfather worked at the McCoy pottery until his death in 1961. Leslie ultimately quit the pottery in 1966 to devote his time fully to his first love, painting. He and his wife, Velma, opened the Cope Gallery in Roseville, Ohio in 1967. Leslie spent the rest of his life happily painting and tending to their English garden. Very sadly, he passed away in April of 2002.

I lived with Leslie and my grandparents in Roseville from 1955 until 1960. So, I grew up with McCoy pottery all around me. As you can imagine, I have always loved McCoy and have been collecting for as long as I can remember. I have decided to divest myself of many items, especially my duplicates.

You can be assured that all my items are original, vintage pieces, no reproductions. In fact, many of my pieces were actually given to me by Leslie and Velma.
