Bathers Tray, Rare Ceramic From Laguna Beach by Pat and Covey Stewart, 1951
This very rare Bathers piece by Pat and Covey Stewart depicts two nude male bathers along the rocky Laguna Beach coast. The Stewarts worked in Laguna Beach, Calif., from 1950 to 1952, exhibiting in the town's annual art fair and selling their ceramic wares to high-end gift shops and hotel shops across the nation.
