Rare Shenandoah Valley Redware Pitcher and Washbowl Set, attributed to J. Eberly & Co., Strasburg, VA, circa 1890, wheel-thrown footed bowl with applied strap handles having faux screwhead ends and girded at the rear by balls of clay. Reverse with coiled ornament of clay resembling a fiddle head. Includes matching pitcher with pronounced foot, high spout, and spurred handle with faux screwhead terminal. Surface of pitcher and washbowl glazed with lead, manganese, and copper, applied over cream-colored slip. The copper slip achieves a pastel or "sea green" appearance over the cream-colored background. It is not known whether this unusual color was intended by the decorator or not. The cleanest example of a Shenandoah Valley pitcher and bowl set we have seen. From a sixty-year Midwestern collection. Light wear to edge of soapdish. Small base chips to pitcher and washbowl. Other light wear to washbowl. H (of pitcher) 11" ; Outside Diameter (of washbowl) 14".
