F. Earl Christy – Ceramic & Porcelain College Collectables

We have previously written about one of our favorite artists, F. Early Christy. Christy did a lot of college illustrations and work early in his career including postcards, illustrations, pillows, etc. This time we focus on his works related to ceramics and porcelain.

A beautiful set of mugs and a pitcher were adorned with Christy artwork, seen below. Such finely crafted items normall sell for upward of $300 each mug. This versions features a play from Yale. Christy also did versions of the same mugs for Harvard and the University of Pennsylvania.

Examples of Columbia University and Yale plates. Christy did most of this working during the very early part of the 20th century, prior to 1910. These particular mugs were manufactured by Avon.
