Unusual Small-Sized Redware Pot, Inscribed "Sept. 22 1893 / made by Kimel", York County, PA origin, 1893, tapered pot with semi-squared rim and lead-glazed interior, the underside with incised script date and signature. Given the similarity between this jar and the previous lot, "Kimel" is possibly the George Kimmel who appears in the 1900 census as a potter operating in nearby Washington Township, York County, PA. Indeed, George Kimmel was clearly brought up in this style. Kimmel's father, Philip, is listed in Lasansky's Central Pennsylvania Redware Pottery as a potter operating in Washington Township in the 1830's; in the 1850 census, George Kimmel appears as a 16-year-old farmer living in his father's household along with another local potter, Jacob Rindlaub. Excellent, essentially as-made condition with some extremely minor base wear. H 3 3/8".
