in the 1950's or 1960's


Until the mid-20th century, pottery was the most common handicraft in the Prekmurje Region. The famous Prekmurje potter villages were Filovci, Tešanovci, Bogojina, Kobilje, Sebeborci, Mosčanci and Pečarovci. The pottery masters formed guilds, the guilds were based in Murska Sobota. The guild book was also stored here, in a crate. Ceramic products were exhibited in a separate room. The potters of the village of Pečarovci, together with the potters from the neighboring village of Moščanci, formed Goričko's strongest and most famous pottery center. The photo shows ceramic pots put out to dry in Pečarovci.
