For Sale is a hard to find piece of Art Pottery made by "The Saturday Evening Girls" (SEG) Pottery Company" of Boston, Mass. The item is an "Berry Bowl". The Bowl has a low profile. It stands 1 3/8 tall and is 4 1/2" in diameter at it widest point. The inside opening is 3 1/8" in diameter.
The Bowl displays a squat form with a rolled edge. It has a very pleasing Matte Mustard Yellow background glaze. The Berry Bowl is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. There is an Insignificant glaze flake on the underside bottom pictured. The Bowl is signed by the Artist on the underside bottom. It is done in a black glaze that reads "T G" or "J E" or "J G" but I'm not sure. I have been unable to find any SEG Artist in my books with those initials. I welcome any information if someone knows the name. This more than likely carried a Paper Label at one time as well.
