McCoy Grecian Pottery and Holiday Greens

McCoy Grecian Pottery
In this pots and plants series entry, we have a two McCoy Grecian pieces with holiday greens. We take out the McCoy Grecian pottery around Christmas time. Its swags of embossed greenery and gold crackled finish seem Christmas-y without being over the top. Here, they are pictured with some purchased holiday greens (holly, spruce, pine, etc.) and yet more Skimmia foremanii. (See Weller Claywood and Skimmia foremanii for more information about Skimmia.) From the McCoy Potttery Collectors’ Society site, it says that Grecian line was introduced in 1957: “Ivory, with Green decoration and 24k Gold networking.”
