MCCOY 1941 SHELL PLANTING VASE, 6" tall x 8" length, gloss (semi-matte) YELLOW glaze. Excellent Condition! As seen in HNH Vol. 1, p. 149. A beautiful sunny example of McCoy's Shell Vases from the 40's era. The overall interior and exterior glaze is in a soft buttery yellow semi-matte glaze with sheen. The interior is in excellent condition, no chips, no cracks, no crazing. There are a couple of minor McCoy manufacturing glaze cracks in the very bottom interior (see photos), but these are original to the piece, do not show through, and are not post production flaws. Super clean inside. The rim is in pristine condition, smooth ridged, and all the points are intact and perfect in condition, no chips, no cracks, no crazing. The lovely curved handle is perfect, no chips, no cracks, no crazing, and has great mold definition. The exterior is always the stand out on these Shell Planting vases, This piece has wonderful crisp mold definition on the exterior pattern, graceful upward lines, with lines folding in overlay. The exterior has no chips, no cracks, no crazing, a couple very minor pin pricks from McCoy mfg. and a glazed over clay nub on rear exterior near handle (see photo) orig. to McCoy mfg. The base is in excellent condition, no chips, no cracks, no crazing, sits balanced. The bottom shows only minor use and is marked "McCoy". Someone has hand written in blk. pen on the unglazed clay base portion (see photo), the inscription: "Jan 24 - 50 from Marie Fritz & David". Not sure if this could be removed, but I think it is rather nostalgic and sweet, most likely dated Jan. 24, 1950. Obviously gifted, and would make an amazing gift today to a McCoy collector. If you collect the sunny yellow McCoys, this would be a nice addition to your collection. Any questions, pls. ask. Guaranteed authentic. McCoy collector is selling a lifetime collection; pls. see my other listings. Buyer to pay shipping + insurance. USPS Priority mail with tracking provided. Thank you for looking!
