Exceptional Shenandoah Valley Multi-Glazed Redware Tankard Pitcher, Strasburg, VA origin, circa 1890, large-sized tankard pitcher with tooled base, flared rim, and ribbed handle, the surface decorated with streaks of green and brown over a cream-colored ground. This example is slightly taller and wide than most or all multi-glazed tankard pitchers we have ever offered. The vast majority of multi-glazed tankard pitchers are found with moderate to significant glaze wear, chips, or repair. This example survives in difficult-to-find, outstanding condition, having seen minimal use and retaining a brilliant luster to surface. One of the finest examples of the form we have ever offered. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, recently found in West Virginia. Excellent condition with a glazed-over, in-the-making flake to side of spout. Other very minor rim and spout wear. Some staining to rim. Glazed surface on exterior and interior remains in remarkable, essentially-as-made condition with no flaking. H 10 1/8".
