Desert Sands 1950-70 Blue Brown White Swirl Plate Stamped
Desert Sands Pottery started in 1950 and continued until 1975. Early Desert Sands pieces were produced in Nevada while the later pieces were made in California. Early pieces of Desert Sands are very similar to Niloak, with only the interior glazed to make them functional. However, Desert Sands often used green, bright yellow, and bright orange, colors not in the Niloak palette. Later pieces received a bright glossy glaze on the exterior, causing the dull clay colors to become brilliant.
This 10 1/2 inch Desert Sands plate has a beautiful swirl of blue, brown, white and rust colors with a clear glossy glaze. This vase is a wonderful example of an arts & crafts style.
Exceptional plate in that it is undamaged, no chips, no cracks, no scratches to glaze, no repairs and little to no crazing. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process. The white spots are studio light reflections.
Authentic Desert Sands Pottery and appropriately marked. All images are original and un-edited.
