Rare Painted Redware Lamb Doorstop, attributed to J. Eberly & Co., Strasburg, VA, circa 1895, molded figure of a reclining lamb with closed eyes, covered in white paint.

Shallow 1/2" chip to one hind foot. 4 3/4" and 3 3/4" in-the-firing separation lines on underside, which were at some point painted brown. Length 11 1/2".
