    Walter Anderson Pottery Cat, ca. 1945

    Appraised on August 1, 2009 by David Rago | Phoenix, Arizona
    Original Appraised Value: $6,000 - $20,000

    We contacted appraiser David Rago for an updated appraisal in today's market.

    • Current Appraised Value: $12,500 - $17,500

    Rago adds: "Shearwater pottery has only gained in value since Hurricane Katrina not only leveled the studio in Gulf Port, but destroyed much of their surviving work as well. This cat is an exceptional piece and, even though it is slip-cast, the coloring elevates it beyond most of the few remaining examples. I narrowed my price range from my original estimate [$10,000 - $20,000] once I was able to establish that it was indeed Shearwater, and I was able to raise the lower end of my valuation as well. It also could well do in excess of this number in a competitive environment."
