Offered today for your consideration is another outstanding and extremely rare piece of art pottery. This piece is by Catalina Potteries of California. It is a head vase featuring the head and shoulders of a woman wearing a babushka, or head scarf, and holding her hands up next to her head. Her hands form the vase part of this lovely piece. The glaze on this vase is thick and creamy as were all of Catalina's high quality glazes, and the best part about it is that it is in the sought-after aqua blue color!
