Rare Painted Redware Lamb Doorstop, attributed to J. Eberly & Co., Strasburg, VA, circa 1895, molded figure of a reclining lamb with closed eyes, covered in old, likely-original white paint. Underrated in rarity, the Eberly lamb doorstop is one of the quintessential Shenandoah Valley redware forms and a classic example of American folk art pottery. Provenance: Catalog numbers in black crayon on the underside indicate this piece was part of the Alvin H. Rice collection and featured in the 1929 book, "The Shenandoah Pottery." Paint wear and some wear to figure itself, including left ear. Shallow 1/2" chip to one hind foot. 4 3/4" and 3 3/4" in-the-firing separation lines on underside, which were at some point painted brown. Length 11 1/2".
