Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Masterful 1/2 Gallon Crock made and signed by "R. and B. Diebboll, Washington, MI."
This is the work of Robert Diebboll and his son, Bruce. Robert founded the Pines End Pottery in 1966 and made pottery until his passing in 2011. The stoneware was made with classic forms and decorations and carried on the American tradition of salt-glaze pottery with stunning success. Diebboll Pottery is highly sought after for its artistry and quality and prices continue to rise.
This beauty features the Small Crock Form, Pottery Stamp with Cobalt Wash, and A Washing Day Scene in Which a Mother is Teaching Her Daughter the Art of Laundering. Central to the scene is the wooden washtub on a stand with soap bubbles coming up out of it. Period attire and ground cover. Measures 6 3/4" tall and 6" wide across the top.
Exceptional Condition. As made. No damage of any kind.
Beside being a piece of pottery growing in value, it would make a great decoration for a modern country laundry room or the perfect size utensil holder in the kitchen.
