Item Details
Description
IMPORTANT STAMPED "BAECHER / WINCHESTER VA", SHENANDOAH VALLEY OF VIRGINIA EARTHENWARE / REDWARE PAIR OF PRESENTATION VASES, lightly lead-glazed, each baluster form with plain rim and pronounced tooled foot. Each with applied multi-blossom flowers and leaves to opposite sides and also with maker's stamp twice on opposite sides. Deeply inscribed under bases "Miss Wood / Fred Co. / Va 1885" and "Miss Wood / 1885". Minor remnants of a later overpaint. Reserve. Anthony Weis Bacher/Baecher (1824-1889), Winchester, VA. Circa 1885. 12 1/4" and 12 1/2" H, 3" D rims, 4 1/4" D bases.
Published: Comstock - Pottery of the Shenandoah Valley Region, p. 174, figs. 4.266, 4.266a. Stamp as Ibid., p. 164, fig. 4.240.
Provenance: From the collection of the late Keith Kibler, Page Co., VA._x000D_
Exhibited: The Luray Valley Museum, Luray, VA.
Catalogue Note: Anthony Baecher is known to have produced a number of presentation vases, with these being probably the finest recorded, and the only known pair. According to Comstock, "These vases were acquired from a Winchester owner who received them from "Miss Wood" (married name unknown). She told the recipient that Bacher had given them to her as a wedding gift. She also stated that Bacher was a friend of her family and that his pottery was about three miles from her father's mill."_x000D_
It is possible that the vases were made for a descendent of Isaac Wood, Quaker owner of the mill at Millbank located just east of Winchester on the Berryville Turnpike. Baecher's pottery shop was located a little over 3 miles north of Millbank. Isaac's son Robert Baldwin Wood (1831-1867) had a daughter Effie H. Wood who was born in 1858 and married H. L. Cartwright in 1885.
Condition
Very good overall condition, each with a loss of one bud and loss/partial loss of several leaves, some expected chipping to flowers, one with a 3 1/2" Y-shape hairline off rim.
