LaGardo Tackett

Hello,

I found this lovely piece of pottery today but I can not identify the maker or find anything close to it online. The piece is 16cm H by 24cm L. It looks like it had a wicker handle attached to it at some point. I have no idea what it's original purpose was. Any help with it would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

I believe this is by Lagardo Tackett, who evidently used the nickname 'Tack' - see http://retrorenovation.com/2011/11/29/lagardo-tackett-1958-egghead-condom-holder-is-just-one-witty-chapter-in-an-amazing-career/ and http://www.modcats.com/item.php?item=964

Hi!
Thank you so much! This is wonderful! I even found a picture of the piece in the article. It's a cookie jar. What a fun designer to know about! I dont think I ever came across his work before, but I will make sure to keep an eye out from now on. Thank you!!

Sadly my piece is missing the handle and the lid. I still think the lines are beautiful and it's a nice piece!" />" />
