Identification This piece is unsigned, but it is attributed to Auman Pottery with a C. Much interesting information regarding C.Masten and Auman Pottery can be found in A. Everette James' North Carolina Art Pottery reference, some of which I'll paraphrase here. Auman pottery (1922 - 1937), was a transitional (from utilitarian wares to artwares) Seagrove area kiln run by Charlie R.
Masten studied at Alfred University under Charles Fergus Binns, and from there he went to Seagrove and worked at Auman pottery. His pieces are rarely marked, but they can be attributed to him based on his distinctive glazing style. Condition The vase looks great overall, with fine, unstained crazing, and no chips or cracks. Variations in and glazing are as made. Some areas of the glaze feel rough to the touch, as made.There are a few small, glazed-over indentations to the sides, as made.
