Description

Large (7.5" x 7") black porcelain cookie jar with gray, blue and white speckles of ceramic "sand" representing the lunar surface covering outside of jar. This delightful ceramic was made by Helen Garriott, wife of Skylab 3 Pilot Owen Garriott and is titled "Earthrise" in reference to the famous Apollo 8 photograph. The top handle on the lid is fashioned in the shape of the earth, which surmounts the lower portion of the jar shaped like the Moon. On the "Moon's" surface are the various lunar mare, with a pair of astronaut footprints near the Sea of Tranquility. Mrs. Garriott made several sizes of these jars in different configurations - this is the larger size. Excellent condition and complete with Helen Garriott's maker's tag which reads: "Earth Rise - From our vantage point on the moon we see the earth rising like a jewel in the darkness of space". Excellent condition.
