Very Rare and Fine Green-Glazed Redware Pitcher, Stamped "JOHN BELL / WAYNESBORO'", PA origin, circa 1850-1880, ovoid pitcher with footed base, pronounced spout, and spurred handle, the surface decorated with a vibrant-green, lead-and-copper glaze over a black-glazed ground. Underside impressed "JOHN BELL / WAYNESBORO'". This stunnningly-glazed pitcher is one of a few examples glazed in this manner that we have seen. Its sophisticated green-over-black glaze is surprisingly modern in style, and possibly Bell's attempt at producing a form of art pottery. One of the finest John Bell pitchers we have ever oferred. A faint 3 1/2" hairline from rim at spout. Wear to rim. Some surface wear to handle and waist of pitcher. H 7".
