Jerome 'Jerry' & Evelyn Ackerman Micro-Mosaic Inlaid Desk Drawer Handle Pull



A fantastic little micro-mosaic design gem with orange inlay by well know Mid-Century Modern designers Jerome (Jerry) & Evelyn Ackerman. The Ackermans began their career in design primarily in ceramics in the early 1950s. After finishing at Alfred University, Jerome worked at the Jenev Design Studio developing ceramic molds, creating various shapes and working on developing different glazes. Evelyn decorated some pieces. In 1960, the Ackermans put their ceramics aside to run their design company Era Industries which in turn launched their careers. This piece was likely designed and made by Evelyn during this time period. Their woks have been exhibited in various galleries and museums including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. They are also recipients of the Henry Award from the Museum of California Design (MOCAD), Los Angeles for their contributions to California design. This piece was acquired directly from the Ackerman's estate along with a few other pieces we will be listing (please see photo from their home studio wall of the couple working on their pottery early in their careers). Would be a wonderful addition to any collectors of their work or an eye-catching work on an existing desk or dresser. Dimensions: 1" high, 1.25" diameter.
