Stephen Dixon watering can

Post by matted on Sun Sep 10, 2017 12:06 pm






Help! Major Mystery Score today in the MPLS MN area. Watering can with a Beauty & the Beast theme. So many wonderful things going on with this piece -- apparently unsigned (inconceivable!?!), unless the large low relief wax seal looking mark is actually a chop, but it feels decorative to me. 18.5" x 12.5" x 10"

Definitely his work. Doesn't really need a mark, but I think the unicorn and lion cartouche maybe one of his marks.

.. and it is in fact given as his mark in BSPM, described as a "spoof coat-of-arms" in use from 1985. The drawing in the book makes it clear that the lion and unicorn are supporting a carrot, rather than a shield.

Yes, gathered that...confirmed by Mr. Dixon that it is indeed his.
