Walter Launt Palmer (American 1854-1932) - Rare and unique ceramic cup decorated with Clematis, 1876. 3.75 inches (height); 3 inches (diameter). Pristine condition. Signed and dated W.L.P. 1876. "De Forest's involvement with this Society must have begun later than June 1878, for he did not return from abroad till then. That he would have been interested in pottery is not implausible, though his own papers make no mention of this. His friend Walter Palmer was a ceramicist, and it is possible that his sister Julia was also working with clay." (taken from Lockwood DeForest. Painter-Importer-Decorator, 1976. Lewis, Anne Suydam. Heckscher Museum, Huntington, New York. Page Twelve. NFS. I am always interested in any unique items by Walter Launt Palmer, including ceramics, drawings, family items, etc.
