I hate to go to the well too often, but I've been staring at this siggie for a solid week and can't make anything out of it.

Nicely done iridescent peacock eye finish on this clear ground.  5 1/2" high, 5 1/4" wide.  Relatively thin walled, +/- 1/8".  Recessed button pontil mark.  Suspect this an American studio work, picked it up here on the east coast.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

It kind of looks like Tom Philabaum's work . He had a studio in Tucson, AZ for many years but may now be retired.

Hey,

Thanks for the lead, it sure looks like you're right.

I guess I should have tried Google Image search first before troubling ya'll, since this form and decor is pretty well pictured online.

Since a little unclear about the signature, but I'll look more into whether he had other artist working with him.

Again, thanks for taking the time to help me out.

I was confused because the siggie is partially separated, apparently it reads "Philabaum".

Again, thanks for the help!!!
