Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Masterful Vase 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 a Tooled Rim and Base, Pottery Stamp with Cobalt Wash, and an Incised Bird Perched on a Flowering Branch. The decoration is very detailed. The bird has a distinctive masked face, fancy feathered neck, dotted breast, and many separate wing and tail feathers. The branch has bark, three leaves, and a flower with five petals. A lot of the decoration is cobalt filled. Salt glaze finish. Stands 8 1/2" tall.
Exceptional Condition. As made. No damage of any kind.
