Rare Shenandoah Valley Slip-Washed Redware Lamb Doorstop, attributed to J. Eberly & Co., Strasburg, VA, late 19th century, molded figure of a reclining lamb with closed eyes, the surface covered in dipped whitish slip. This example reveals subtle traces of accidental lead glaze to the jaw and neck area, as well as to the bottom edge, creating an attractive gloss to the surface. An iconic Shenandoah Valley figural form. Typical wear to slip. Otherwise excellent condition. Length 12".
