Studio Anna & Florenz Pottery

Aboriginal motif pottery
Studio Anna ‘crab’ plate and
Florenz Pottery dish and ashtray
made in Sydney c. 1950s

Both Studio Anna and Florenz Pottery had their pottery studios in Marrickville, Sydney. Florenz started in the 1930s and Studio Anna in 1953. These slip cast pottery items evidence the Australiana themes and souvenir ware discussed in the post below.

The crab plate has some very minor chips on its edge [click on the image for zoom view] – and is marked Studio Anna on the underside. I am particularly drawn to the funky rounded-triangle shape of this piece. The dish and ashtray are unmarked, but presumed Florenz Pottery due to similar pieces in other’s collections. The three pieces make a nice ensemble with the rich ochres, and black and white patternings.
