Lane Pottery 1957 - Gift of Gary Fredburg to the Museum of the San Fernando Valley 2008
Your Museum collects fine art, folk art and craft-works related to San Fernando Valley history and culture. The Lane Ceramic Company (sometimes referred to as Sunkist Creations) operated from 14660 Arminta Street in Van Nuys, from 1959 to sometime in the mid-1960s.
This March, Gary Fredburg (member of the Board of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley) presented the Museum a fine example of Laneware. It is candy-dish in size and could be used as a bowl or a little flower vase.
