Rare Pair of Southern Salt-Glazed Stoneware Vases, attributed to George Washington Dunn, TN origin, late 19th or early 20th century, finely-potted pair of vases with pronounced feet, tooled rims, and open handles with delicately-scrolled and pointed lower terminals. Each vase is dipped halfway in a reddish-brown slip, which assumes a greenish "frogskin" surface when reacting with its overlying salt glaze. Graceful and artistic in their form, this pair is attributed to Dunn based on at least two other singular, related vases bearing his incised signature. The fact that this pair has survived together with minimal damage is noteworthy. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market lot, which recently surfaced in Virginia. Both in very nice condition. One with a loss to tip of lower handle terminal and some surface wear. The other with a rim chip and some surface wear. H (of slightly taller vase) 10".
