Western PA Stoneware Pitcher with Elaborate Floral Decoration

March 3, 2012 Stoneware Auction

Lot #: 265

Price Realized: $1,380.00 ($1,200 hammer, plus 15% buyer's premium).

One-Gallon Stoneware Pitcher with Cobalt Floral Decoration, Western PA origin, circa 1865, cylindrical-bodied pitcher with tall flaring collar and heavily-tooled midsection and base. Body decorated with a series of flowering vines and swags. Collar decorated with flowering vines on each side, and spout decorated with cobalt dashes. This pitcher resembles the work of D.P. Shenfelder of Reading, PA. However, the dark clay indicates a Western PA origin, suggesting this pitcher may have been made at a Western PA pottery where Shenfelder previously worked. Restored handle. In-the-firing flakes to body. Restored spout chip and restored rim chips. 1" hairline in rim.
