Underside incised with potter's signature, location, and date. Vessel appears to have a light glaze coating that may be lead-based. Buff clay on interior. Relatively few examples of signed Iowa redware are known. A crack in one lower handle terminal suggests one handle may be reglued. Otherwise excellent condition. H 2 3/4".
