This double-walled flowerpot saucer was generously daubed with black manganese dioxide on the red clay body, then given a final clear glossy top glaze. The bottom was left unglazed and is stamped with the mark: Wisconsin Pottery Columbus WI and SA {the decorator's initials}. Wisconsin Pottery was started in 1984 by Joel Huntley in Columbus Wisconsin. He was cited by Early American Life Magazine in 1990 as a master potter using centuries old techniques to hand throw and hand finish his wares, inspired by folk pottery produced in America and Europe. Flowerpot saucers like this one date from the early to mid 1800's. Single walled ones, typical of the red clay ones used today, were more common, since they were simpler to make.

This large saucer is about 8 1/2 inches across and a bit over an inch high. The ruffled rims were formed by hand like pie crust edges and the piece weighs 1 3/4 pounds. Wisconsin Pottery is avidly collected.

This traditional redware piece is in exceptional condition--no chips, no cracks, no loss of glaze. It looks wonderful on display and is perfect for that favorite plant, indoors or out.
