Provenance: From the collection of Malcolm Watkins (1911-2001), head curator of the Department of Natural History, Smithsonian Museum. Artist history: Potter 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 Meaders folk pottery trade started in 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: Overall very good condition.
