The sale of an estate collection of studio pottery, antique-fabric pillows, and bronze sculptures is currently taking place at Cornelia Cotton Gallery, 111 Grand Street, Croton-on-Hudson.
The pottery pieces range from a grand fifteen inch platter to a tiny footed dish. There are other platters, sets of dinner plates, sets of bowls of various sizes; also cups, mugs, trays; a lidded pot, and a cake stand. Much of the pottery is vintage work by local artists Jim and Lala Howard.
The pillows, made by a local artist, are crafted from antique fabrics. Some are made from African Ewe cloth while others are made from Indonesian batiks. They come in assorted sizes, and they have never been offered to the public before.
The bronzes include a set of flowers, a group of birds, a tree, and the head of a woman.
In addition, there is a small exhibit and sale of old prints and other material in observance of the 175th anniversary of the completion of the Old Croton Aqueduct, when the city of New York could finally provide clean water to its citizens. The prints trace the OCA from the dam in Yorktown Heights to the plaza and fountain in front of City Hall during the festivities in October 1842.
Hours are Wednesday, Thursday, Friday 12-5, Saturday 10-5, and by appointment. For information, directions, etc. please call 271-6802.
