What date would this Smisek pot be?

Post  mike67 on Fri 25 Mar - 22:38

I was told this was an early Mirek Smisek pot by an auctioneer who should know. I have tried to find dates with marks but have not been very successful. This pot is large 360 mm tall.

Mirek's book 60 Years 60 Pots has on the last page all of his marks and the dates used.
It shows there were 6 earlier marks than this one which is from 1968 onwards.
His first mark is from 1949. This is a great piece.

Thanks Ev. I have been meaning to buy that book but one hasn't come up yet when I have been looking.

I've never seen one listed. I got my copy from the Rotorua Museum when the exhibition was on there. I was lucky that they would post it to me.

Hi there, I bought my copy from Mahara Gallery, Waikanae, Kapiti Coast - quite a while after the exhibition was there - may be worth an email? cheers Carol
