Wonderful Mississippi Pottery Angel by McCarty.For those of you unfamiliar with McCarty pottery its made in the small Delta town of Merigold, Mississippi (600 people). A world-renowned pottery business started in 1954 by Lee & Pup Mccarty. They began experimenting with natural Mississippi clay from a pit on William Faulkner's property in Oxford, MS. Soon their work became an avocation and a permanent place was needed for their studio and kilns, taking them back to Lee's hometown of Merigold. Collecting McCarty pottery is a true addiction! If you want to entertain like a true southern you must have McCarty on your table! This would make a wonderful last minute Christmas Gift!! Please see my other auction for a Praying McCarty Angel.
