pretty perky pottery!

What's not to like about such an assortment of color and form?  Mid century modern has had a resurgence (another re- word!) in the past several years.  Some shops in the twin cities carry only this look, in addition to  individual dealers who have discovered  a market for objects  someone's grandmother, mother, aunt etc etc may have decorated their homes with.  Todays grandmas didn't necessarily grow up in a log cabin with no electricity, running water or (gasp) a TV or phone------present day grannys are a lot hipper!  Anyway, McCoy, Van Briggle, Haeger, West German, Italian, Red Wing pieces can still be found for reasonable prices  and aren't they fun?   PS:  from a private collection.
