Merritt Island Pottery Bowl

Beautiful Florida pottery by Mel Casper, Merritt Island Pottery
Measures approx. 4" diameter and 2" height.

 I've found and a few nice Merritt Island Pottery pieces over the past few years.  They are distinct in their glazing with a very clear signature. There is a lot written about Mel Casper and Merritt Island Pottery. Here is an interesting article from Orlando Sentinal from 1986.  He seemed like quite a character. Mel died in 2001 so his pieces are becoming more rare as collectors scoop them up.
