Important Bell Pottery Pair. Exceedingly Rare Matched Pair of Lead-and-Manganese-Glazed Redware Spaniels, Stamped "JOHN BELL," Waynesboro, PA origin, third quarter 19th century.
One of a small number of matched spaniel pairs by John Bell known, and the first pair to come to auction in many years. Both feature a visually-appealing mottled brown glaze over light yellow clay, with incised and impressed embellishments to the face and body. Surviving together in remarkable condition, this pair is one of the finest lots of Bell family pottery ever to be auctioned. Literature: Pictured in H.E. Comstock, The Pottery of the Shenandoah Valley Region, p. 153, figure 4.209.
