Wharf Pottery, Godalming

A excellent example of Mary Wondrausch's work. Decorated in an English vernacular style, reviving traditional 17th Century rustic pottery. The verse, after a haiku by Matsuo Bashō (1644-1694), inscribed to the belly of the jug between two sgraffito illustrations, reads:-
and the grass
grows by itself"
Signed with "MW" monogram (beneath the handle). Very unusual for retaining its original label and Wharf Pottery, Godalming leaflet.
