An interesting little 4 1/2" vase made by Nemadji pottery. It has a swirled green agate pattern in a matte almost sand papery finish. The inside has a shiny glaze to make it water proof. -Mike-

Found one here just like it :)

    This is not native American pottery as most people think.Its made by Scandinavians in Minnesota! The name "Nemadji" is refering to the Nemadji river which is where the beige/grey clay comes from.
    They use an indian head logo that makes folks believe Native Americans made it although this is not the case...they closed shop in 2001 and if you can find pieces in blue- they will be the rarest....green is great! Nice piece!

    Thanks for the info Weirdpuckett I never knew much about this pottery other than I have seen it occasionally. I'll have to keep a look out for the blue pieces ! :)

    Truly unique, no two are alike. This pottery is no longer made. The NEMADJI tile and pottery Company of Moose Lake Minnesota started production in 1929 and ceased production in 2001. I have 8 pieces but none in blue.
