This vintage Henry Graack Silver Spring Pottery Swirl vase measures 10.5" high by 6.25" in diameter. Graack worked at Fort Ticonderoga at Lake Champlain in upstate NY, in the 1920s-1930s. He left NY c1935 when he was invited to Ocala, Florida by William Rae, owner of the Silver Springs. Graack spent the next thirty-one years, until his death in Ocala in 1966, making souvenir pottery for tourists at the Silver Spring. This vase is formed by natural clays, which were swirled together, and dominated in greens and terra cotta clay colors. It is hand turned, with a sculpted design at the rim. It is marked with a deeply incised 'SILVER SPRING, FLA.' on the base. This vase is in as found condition with an inclusion in the body of the vase that is likely post production, and a chip on the foot. There are small surface chips and nicks under the rim, all shown in the photos. This is an early and large example of Silver Spring Pottery by Graack, and it has all the nuances of a handmade pot.
