Merv Taylor Spirit Barrell: a centerpiece for any collection
THis were made in very small qauntities as they were very expensive when sold new. It is a masterpiece of craftmanship and I would think Merv Taylor's crowning achievement. I looked for one for 10 years before buying mine at Printice Taylor's Potter auction. I paid over $2,000 4 years ago.
As luck sometimes happenes I have aquired another. This one from the Clayton Jacobson collection. It is complete and in near perfect condition (yes it has the final black art load gimmick). A very rare item.
