Exceptional Miniature Copper-and-Cream-Glazed Redware Jug, attributed to S. Bell & Sons or J. Eberly & Co., Strasburg, VA, circa 1890, wheel-thrown, cylindrical jug with short, wide spout, the surface dipped in cream-colored slip and coated in a mottled lead-and-copper glaze. The smallest example of glazed Strasburg redware that we have seen, this work is exceptionally thick-walled, possibly formed with the potter's pinky finger or a thin wooden implement. Likely made as a child's toy. Note the perfectly-formed handle in miniature as seen on so many examples of typically-sized Strasburg multi-glazed redware. Provenance: Recently found in Pennsylvania. Wear to rim and bottom edge. Very minor handle wear. Small glaze flakes. H 1 5/8".
