Major collection of 9 vintage pieces of Rare MONROE SALT WORKS POTTERY created at the MONROE, MAINE factory which closed in 2009.

Collection includes 6 Dinner Plate/Platter or Pie Plates. Each is approximately 10 3/4" wide and approximately 1 1/2" deep.

Each is different, one has no detail. The other five have details...Fruit including plums, blackberries and grapes, one has a fish(this plate is the only one with a 3/8" minor hairline crack which does not go all the way through and does not affect the function of the item), one has a pair of rabbits (this plate has the Monroe Salt Works Monroe, Maine stamp), one has a fox, one has 3 wild boars.

There are also 3 Mugs which are 4" tall and 3" diameter.

2 Mugs have floral motifs including the popular rose image(the one with the larger red rose is incised with MSW on the bottom) the third mug has the same plums, blackberries and grapes image like one of the plates.

All pieces are in very good used condition with the one small crack I mentioned. There is minor crazing as with most pottery. There may be rough textures, dimples, uneven glaze, and no two pieces are alike. Please refer to the photos for additional details. Please see pictures as they are part of the description and please ask any questions prior to bidding.

The pottery is Dishwasher, Microwave & Oven proof/safe.
