Multicolored pottery with these distinctive swirls was made by Henry A. Graack, assisted by Madelyn Graack, from the 1930’s until his death 1966 for the tourist trade, at Sliver Springs, Florida. H.A. Graack, from Kolding, Denmark, had a small stand on the grounds of Silver Springs, Florida where he turned pottery and sold it to the tourists. During the summers, Graack made very similar pottery at Fort Ticonderoga, NY.
