Highly Unusual Stoneware Conjoined Cups with Profuse Cobalt Vining and Stripe Decoration, Greensboro or New Geneva, PA origin, circa 1880, pair of ovoid cups with thin rims and applied strap handles, each cup decorated on one side with freehand cobalt vining between two stripes and on the reverse with wavy stripes between freehand stripes. Cobalt highlights and juncture of cup and handle terminals. Possibly made for a marriage, and featuring two iconic Western PA motifs (vining and stripes), this form is the first example we have seen in American stoneware. One handle restored. Otherwise excellent condition. H 2 3/8" ; L (across both cups) 6 7/8".
