Very Rare Shenandoah Valley Glazed Redware Jar, Stamped "BACHER & KERN / WINCHESTER VA.", circa 1882, cylindrical jar with tapered shoulder, rounded rim, and tooled line accents to body, the surface covered in a clear lead glaze over a mottled olive ground with profuse bright-orange spotting. Underside impressed with "BACHER & KERN" maker's mark, beautifully accented in a green-tone lead glaze. According to H.E. Comstock's The Pottery of the Shenandoah Valley Region, this mark was very short-lived, used in the year 1882 during the partnership of Anthony Weis Bacher and Adam Kern (Comstock, p. 363). Relatively few pieces bearing this mark are known and this example features a particularly vibrant glaze atypical of most Bacher wares. Two in-the-firing flakes to shoulder. A short, very minor line from rim, visible only on interior. Two minor base chips. H 8".
