Extremely Rare Pair of Shenandoah Valley Multi-Glazed
Item Details
Description
Extremely Rare Pair of Shenandoah Valley Multi-Glazed Redware Vases, attributed to J. Eberly & Co., Strasburg, VA, circa 1890, both of ovoid form with footed base, tooled shoulder, and flared rim, each decorated with splashed copper glaze and manganese slip over a cream-colored slip ground with sporadic, light lead glaze to areas of surface. Interiors coated in a clear lead glaze over a bright, light-orange clay ground. This lot is one of a few pairs of multi-glazed redware vases known from the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, and the first of this style that we have seen. The two vases are noteworthy in their sizes, each measuring approximately 11" tall and dwarfing most examples of Strasburg multi-glaze known. Whether unused or treasured by their original owner, they survive in a remarkable state of preservation, particularly when considering the often-flawed condition of glazed Shenandoah Valley redware. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market pair, purchased by the consignor decades ago from a collector in Harper's Ferry, WV. Excellent, essentially as-made condition. H (of taller vase) 11".
