Arthur Ray (AR) Cole (1892-1874) operated his first pottery shop in 1926 in Steeds, NC near Seagrove, NC. He moved his shop to Sanford NC in the early 1930's where his shop became the primary provider of pottery for Maurice Leverette's Rainbow Pottery (1934-1941). In 1942 he discontinued work for Rainbow Pottery and opened his own shop, AR Cole Pottery, in Sanford. The Cole family is among the most prominent in North Carolina pottery history and are among the pioneers of the North Carolina art pottery movement. AR Cole was the son of potter Ruffin Cole and the nephew of potters Wrenn Cole and JB Cole. One of his brothers was CC Cole. As afamily the Coles are recognized for their unique and artistic forms and interesting glazes. When he opened AR Cole Pottery in 1941 his daughters, Neolia Cole (1927-) and Celia Cole (1924-) worked with him. His son, G.F. Cole (1919-1991) and potters such as Jack Kiser and Elvin Owen worked with him periodically.

Offered for salefrom my personal collection isan interesting vase from AR Cole. It is one of the unique forms for which AR Cole Pottery is known: the snake handled or wrapped handled vase. This is a well turned example of the form. It is 11 1/2 inches tall, 7 inches wide at its widest point, and it weighs just under four pounds. It is a thinly glazed crystal green rutile glaze, light green with darker green and brown accents. It is in excellent from the kill condition and has no cracks, chips or repairs. It is unmarked but the form and clay color are AR Cole Pottery.

Shipment by Priority Mail. Insurance is included in the handling fee.

This ishandmade pottery and I provide multiple photos for your review. Please email any questions before offerding as returns are accepted for a grosserror in description only.
