Seaweed Vase – Porcelain In The Style of Celia Thaxter – Hand Painted – Pottery In The Style of Celia Thaxter – China In The Style of Celia Thaxter
This beautiful Seaweed Porcelain Vase is In Style of Celia Thaxter – renown Isles of Shoals Poetess and Porcelain Painter. Celia Thaxter spent more of her life on Appledore Island where her restored garden can be visited.
After searching for three years to find an artist who was talented enough to paint In the Style of Celia Thaxter, I found one! She lives on her mountain top in New Hampshire and had a Star Island connection from her youth. Her pieces are properly signed and annotated, but otherwise nearly impossible to distinguish from the original pieces that Celia Thaxter did herself!
Original pieces, painted and signed by Celia Thaxter are valued well beyond what most can afford! A small broth cup, without its saucer, recently went at auction for $3600.00.
Periodically as a piece becomes available we will be offering these very affordable pieces painted In The Style of Celia Thaxter.
This vase measures 8 3/8″ tall, 3 3/4″ wide and 2″ deep.
One Woman’s Work: The Visual Art of Celia Laighton Thaxter by Sharon Paiva Stephan is the most authoritative book on Celia Thaxter’s porcelain painting! It is available online.
