Provenance: Consignors lived close to Mossy Creek and were close friends of the Meaders family. They purchased the canister set directly from Arie Meaders in the early 1960s. Arie Waldrop Meaders (1897-1989) was born the third of twelve children in Macon County, NC. When her family moved to North Georgia she met and married Cheever Meaders. By the 1950s the folk pottery trade her husband and his family had practiced since 1892 was failing. Arie stepped in and began creating and producing colorful and innovative designs that brought a revival to the craft. In 1978 she was honored alongside her son, Lanier, by the Library of Congress in Washington, DC with Meaders Pottery Day. Condition: See description.
