A rare early dated example of Scheier pottery that uses abstracted faces to form surface decoration. This piece from 1949 employs four vertically stacked rows of faces. A center line bisects each stack, and faces alternate their placement in relation to the line. Where a face is not used in a position against the line, hair extends out horizontally from the head, a detail that is used in Edwin's decoration through his final working years in the early 1990's. Glazed in browns and black and with an unusually tall vertical lip to the vessel. 10 inches high and 7 1/2 inches wide at the rim.
