    This was my splurge for the day. It cost a lot more than I spend but I had to have it. Found it at the "Volunteer's of America "after yesterdays half price madness was over. The have more space so out comes the new stuff. It's made by Gonder Ceramic Arts Inc. I had never heard of this company. They were in Zanesville Ohio and apparently not for very long either, 1941-1957. The finish is a satin sort of speckled turquoise color. The interior is finished in a rosy pink .It has two chips in the glaze. One on the top near the rim and the other on the bottom corner next to a big bubble in the glaze. Double whammy...lol. What a day! Two great pieces ! -Mike-

    A bit of info from Etsy,
    Gonder Ceramic Arts Inc. was founded in 1941 by Lawton Gonder in Zanesville, Ohio, which was home to several other pottery manufacturers including Roseville. The pottery factory closed in 1957

      I have a few gonder pieces but not nearly as nice.

      At first I thought it was "Gonger" because of that extra tail on the "d". I figured you would know about them. This comes in other colors but I like this the best. They didn't put this out yesterday at VOA or I could have got it for half price. I paid fifteen and it retails for between forty and sixty without damage, but I don't sell my treasures anyway.

      Good deal

      I usually don't think about these pieces in monetary terms,but sometimes you have to to justify it to yourself.

      It just kind of struck me that this looks more like a Loon. This piece has the same pose they assume as they glide across the water .
