A quickie post - we’re still in the midst of unpacking boxes and boxes of things after we moved. Since I had almost all the Howard Pierce porcelain items in one place, I decided to take a quick photo of them in case they get separated. I think we’ll keeping most of the Pierce, but I wanted a group picture just in case.
Not shown are a goldleaf Madonna and Child figurine that we got recently, as well as a weird pink and green Howard Pierce dinnerware bowl - I think those are fairly uncommon. That particular bowl looks just like a William Manker piece.
The funniest thing - today when sharing this group photo, I mentioned to a bunch of online folks that I hadn’t found any Howard Pierce pieces in such a long time. Then I dropped by the thrift and found two of his Angelfish! Kind of funny how that thrifting karma works sometimes…
