Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this gorgeous Stoneware Bowl 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 and a Rabbit Jumping Over Some Tulips Executed with a Slip Cup in Strong Cobalt Blue. The decoration is inspired by the 19th century Norton pottery of Bennington, Vermont that used the rabbit motif. The decoration is framed by comma vining on the front, and addition dangling vining and fruit accents the back. Measures 5 1/4" tall and 8 3/4" wide across the top.
Notice that Diebboll even copied the process of wrapping the crock with cheesecloth as it dried before firing which give the surface the rippled texture.
