Exceptional Shenandoah Valley Multi-Glazed Redware Tankard Pitcher, attributed to S. Bell & Sons or J. Eberly & Co., Strasburg, VA, circa 1890, cylindrical form with footed base, tooled shoulder, and flared collar, the surface dipped in cream-colored slip, decorated with large, mottled streaks of copper and manganese, and covered in a clear lead glaze. This example is shorter and narrower than most multi-glazed tankards known and its surface is strikingly decorated with marbled glazing in a manner related to the Winchester, VA master potter, Anthony Weis Bacher. A bold drip of copper cascades from the handle. Among the finest Shenandoah Valley tankard pitchers that we have ever offered. A horizontal line to base. Additional lines to interior base, not visible on exterior. A 1 1/4" piece of adhered in-the-firing clay on underside. A small rim chip. A minor rim nick with a tight 4" crack descending from it. H 8 5/8".
