Extremely Rare One-Quart Stoneware Pitcher, attributed to Andrew Coffman at the John Zigler Pottery, Timberville, VA, circa 1832, small-sized pitcher with ovoid midsection, ribbed strap handle, and tall, narrow collar. Cobalt-decorated with an abstract spray of leaves on the front and cobalt dashes along the spout. Attribution to Coffman at Zigler's shop is based on similar examples pictured on pages 4 and 5 (plates 3 and 4) of Evans' and Suter's A Great Deal of Stone & Earthen Ware. This pitcher is the smallest we have seen produced at this early Shenandoah Valley pottery. Desirable size, form, and maker. 2" long shallow loss to rim molding, possibly in the firing. Other shallow chipping to rim. Tiny spout chip. A few in-the-firing base chips and an in-the-firing 7 1/6" stone ping to reverse. A few minor nicks to handle. Tight horizontal line in base of handle. H 6".
