Art pottery bowl
Thrown by George E. Ohr of Biloxi, Mississippi
Decorated by Susan S. Frackelton, 1899
Earthenware with green, clear, and brown glazes

Earthenware bowl is squat and bulbous. It is red with mottled green glaze on the exterior and clear and dark brown glazes on the interior. The bowl is decorated with molded hearts, diagonal bands, and flowers applied around the rim. A maker's mark, "SF", and date, "99", are incised on the underside, along with "G.E. Ohr" over "Biloxi, Miss" stamped in clay.

The bowl is the product of a collaboration between art potter George E. Ohr of Biloxi, Mississippi and Frackelton. There are several known co-signed pieces in existence. Donated in 1958 by Frackelton's daughter, Gladys F. Seely.
