Rare Shenandoah Valley Glazed Redware Vase, Stamped "BAECHER / WINCHESTER, VA", circa 1880, finely-potted, ovoid vase with footed base, long neck, and flared rim, the surface dipped in yellowish slip, decorated with a streaked and spattered manganese, and covered in a heavy lead glaze. Impressed with Anthony Weis Bacher maker's mark at shoulder. This vase features a striking marbled glaze and elegant potting in the classic Bacher style. While much of Bacher's work is found with light application of lead, giving it a matte appearance to the surface, the glaze on this example is bright and lustrous. Very nice condition for this maker, with two restored rim chips, two glaze flakes to body, measuring 2" and 1", and expected minor rim and base wear. H 9 1/8".
