Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Masterful 2 Gallon Ovoid Jar with Dotted Bird 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 an Early Ovoid Form with Open Handles, Pottery Stamp with Cobalt Wash, and a Gorgeous Bird Standing on Ground Cover and Framed by Two Tulips. The decoration is applied with a slip cup and extremely detailed. The bird has a distinctive face, striped neck, dotted breast and back, and many separate wing feathers. The floral has seven striped leaves and two tulip blossoms with stripe accent. As a whole, the decoration recalls early pieces from New York and New England. Very solid with gray salt glaze finish. Stands 10 1/2" tall.
