Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this gorgeous 1 Gallon Stoneware Jug 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 Woman Churning Butter. The woman had a dotted bonnet and shiirt, and a apron with front floral motif. The churn is the old wooden stave type. The design is framed by ground cover and two small trees. The decoration is executed with a slip cup in strong cobalt blue. Folk art at its best! Measures 10 3/4" tall.
Excellent Condition. Two minor 1/8" nibbles on the base. That's it! No spout chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
