Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this gorgeous 1 Gallon Stoneware 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.
This beauty features the pottery stamp with cobalt wash, and a Dotted Lion on Ground Cover Executed with a Slip Cup in Strong Cobalt Blue. The decoration is inspired by the 19th century potteries of New York , particularly Burger of Rochester. Folk art at its best! Measures 7 1/4" tall and 7 1/4" wide across the top.
Notice that Diebboll even copied the process of wrapping the crock with cheesecloth as it dried before firing which gives the surface the rippled texture.
