Extremely Rare Pair of Glazed Redware Porch Vases, Stamped "WINCHESTER / POTTERIES / VA", attributed to Theodore "Thedy" Fleet, Round Hill Pottery, Frederick County, VA, circa 1930, large-sized, ovoid-bodied vases with tooled midsections, footed base, flared collars, and applied handles with upswept terminals. Exterior surface covered in a heavy lead glaze over a spotted clay ground reminiscent of New Market, VA redware of the 19th century. Interior covered in a slightly-darker, translucent lead-and-manganese glaze. Impressed on underside with the maker's mark, "WINCHESTER / POTTERIES / VA", within an apple. The vases exceptional size, striking glaze, and survival as a pair rank them among the finest examples of Round Hill redware that we are aware of. Both appear to have seen little use. One with in-the-firing lines and a minor 3/4" in-the-firing contact mark to one side. The other with in-the-firing lines, a 4 1/2" tight, in-the-firing inverted Y-shaped crack from rim, a chip to one handle, a 1 1/2" in-the-firing contact mark to one side, and a 3/4" in-the-firing contact mark to c7llar on opposite side. H (of taller example) 15".
