Early 20th c. Niloak Missionware Pottery Lamp. Original period lamp shade. Brown and taupe swirls. Measures 20" tall. Shade is 12"x12"x8.75. Weight is 8 pds. Niloak is a popular American art pottery that was created and made in Benton, Arkansas (Saline County) from 1909 until 1946 by the Eagle Pottery Company. Niloak is best known for its unique Mission-swirl design, but the company in later years produced two other lines, Hywood Art Pottery and the Hywood by Niloak. The name “Niloak” is the word “kaolin” spelled backward. Kaolin is a type of fine-grade clay found near Benton and used in production. Niloak was the creation of Benton native Charles Dean “Bullet” Hyten and an Ohio potter named Arthur Dovey. PROVENANCE: A Charleston SC Private Estate.
