Item Details
Description
DRY RIVER, ROCKINGHAM CO., SHENANDOAH VALLEY OF VIRGINIA DECORATED STONEWARE PITCHER, salt-glazed, approximately one-gallon capacity, ovoid form with three spaced, heavily incised shoulder rings, beaded rim, and strap handle with medial double rib and lower thumbprint terminal. Brushed cobalt wide-blossom floral decoration highlighted with slip-trailed lines and dots. Probably John D. Heatwole (1826-1907) or his son Andrew, or Lindsey Morris (1817-1902). Circa 1860-1870. 8 3/4" H, 4 1/2" D rim.
Published: Evans/Suter - A Great Deal of Stone & Earthen Ware, p. 46, fig. 46.
Provenance: Collection of Maxine and the late Carlton Rinaca, Shenandoah, VA._x000D_
Exhibited: "'A Great Deal of Stone & Earthen Ware,' The Rockingham County, Virginia School of Folk Pottery", Harrisonburg-Rockingham Historical Society, September 7 - December 30, 2004, No. 46 (with exhibition label).
Catalogue Note: This pitcher displays a classic Dry River form, see Evans/Suter, figs. 48 and 49 for examples by John D. Heatwole. However, the distinctive decoration, which is closely related to the dated 1859 pitcher illustrated in Evans/Suter, fig. 45, is not in a style associated by Heatwole. This raises the possibility that it was made at the Morris Pottery site located across Dry River from the Heatwole site.
Condition
