Rare Glazed Redware Pitcher, Stamped "BAECHER / WINCHESTER, VA," circa 1880, ovoid pitcher with short, slightly-flared spout, pinched spout, and heavily-ribbed handle with triangular terminal. Surface covered in a colorful mottled yellow and brown tortoiseshell-type glaze. The heavy lead content of the glaze imparts an exceptionally strong luster to the surface. Impressed on underside with the maker's mark of Shenandoah Valley master potter, Anthony Weis Bacher. The form of this pitcher is essentially the prototype for the popular multi-glazed creamers produced by the Eberlys and Bells in Strasburg many years later. Some small glaze flakes to surface. Wear to rim. Light wear to handle. H 7 1/2".
