Rare Redware Lamb Doorstop, attributed to J. Eberly & Co., Strasburg, VA, circa 1895, molded, solid-bodied figure of a reclining lamb with closed eyes and incised mouth and nostrils. 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. A shallow chip to underside of one front leg. A chip to lower jaw, probably in the firing. Chip to chin. A 1" surface crack descending from corner of mouth to base. A small, shallow chip to one ear. An in-the-firing surface line along back. Other minor wear. Length 11 1/2".
