I hope this finds you well! This is a rare vintage Signed JARU California Pottery mid century modern human abstract decanter by Edmund Ronaky. Jaru Art Products was started in 1950 by Jack and Ruth Hirsh in Culver City, Calif. The name is a combination of the first two letters of their first names (Ja and ru).
It is in wonderful vintage condition. Cream glaze on front does have normal overall crazing. There is also a pinhead dot of glaze flake on the lower side on the back.
This piece seems to be a bit of a departure from Edmund Ronaky's usual pieces, making this piece very unique and rare. The decanter is ceramic pottery with handle and an opening on top with original cork.
The front of the piece has an abstract human face and a brown star pattern. The back of the piece is a very dark brown with variegated lighter brown highlights.
Standing 9.5 tall to top of head and 6 across the base. The bottom has the California Decorative Original by JARU label/sticker and it also has Edmund Ronaky's signature and 208? Very hard to see, but its there! PLEASE REVIEW ALL MY PHOTOS AS I CONSIDER THEM PART OF THE DESCRIPTION.
All my items have been stored in a Smoke Free/Pet Free home. I do have an adorable Russian Tortoise but he's my baby! Regarding "used" items, please remember that imperfections caused by aging.
How it was made and also how it was previously used are and can be expected. Please determine condition by yourself taking a close look at pictures and asking questions.
I try my best to get accurate colors on pictures but they will never be 100% exact. If you do not contact me requesting additional time to pay. INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: PLEASE BE AWARE FIRST CLASS CANNOT BE INSURED. Thanks so much for viewing my listings and HAVE AN AWESOME DAY!
