Ben Owen Sr. (1904 - 1983) was one of the great North Carolina potters. He was one of the earliest potters at Jugtown in the Seagrove area of North Carolina. The "BEN OWEN MASTER POTTER" stamp on this Cup dates from 1960' or there after, we believe this maybe from his Old Plank Road Pottery shop. Both Ben Owen Sr and Farrell Craven used this stamp at that time. All mugs in excellent condition overall, some under glaze crazing and rub marks, but very minor and expected. They measure approximately 3" tall by 3 3/4" wide at the mouth. Pottery glaze is of orange color, no chips, cracks, or hairlines, some light surface rubs.
Marked with backstamp of maker as shown, Ben Owen Master Potter, dates from 1960's period or there after.
Item is Pre-Owned and is in excellent condition with typical estate wear.
