Studio Anna made souvenirware for tourists to take home from Australia in the 40s and 50s- and here we have a lovely pin dish from Alice Springs inscribed ‘Flynn’s Church.’ Clearly, Flynn’s Church was a] an important institution in Alice Springs and b] in Alice Springs.
I love the bland churchy rendering of this image- it could be any of a hundred churches built in the 50s – so I suspect it was mass produced for the many- but given a hand-inscribed name for the few.
I’m a great fan of Studio Anna – hand-renderings in ceramic glaze of the 50s and 60s in Australia- a wonderful portrait of the times. I have amassed a sizeable collection – see several posts below.
The Studio Anna pin dish ‘Flynn’s Church’ is for sale: $AUD35
