Peasant Girl w 2 Pots Nichols CA Pottery 1950's Vintage
1950's vintage pottery figurine is peasant girl in polka dotted dress carrying 2 flower pots. Her insides are hollow so you can use her as a flower vase and it will look like she's carrying 2 pots of flowers... similar in idea to the head vases of that era that looked like the flowers were in their hats. She's 6.25" high. The overall pink color is actually the color of the clay itself covered with a clear glossy glaze. You can see the same color on the base and it is not glazed there. Polka dots and stripes are colored slips in relief on the surface. There's an overall crackle in the glaze and the very point of her scarf in back has no glaze (either worn away or a very tiny flea bite... but it's smooth). She's in good condition otherwise. I've been told she was made by Betty Lou Nichols of California but there are no marks except 2 black lines on the underside. Purchased many years ago from an estate sale.
