1947 Russell Stahl Redware Small Pitcher Glazed Brown Colored Line Decoration
Description: A 1947 glazed redware barrel-shaped small pitcher having an applied handle and a spout. The pitcher is brown in color and has line decorations along its circumference consisting three lines in groups near the top and the bottom and a wavy line between two lines in the middle. The pitcher is in the form of a barrel with a flat base slightly extending outwards. Its exterior is nicely textured and not completely smooth. The piece is glazed on the inside and the outside but not on the bottom. The pitcher has a flat round base which is not glazed and shows the color of unglazed redware. It is signed and dated by the potter Russell Stahl. A great piece of Stahl pottery to add to your collection. Please carefully review the photos presented as they are part and parcel of our description.

Origin: Powder Valley, in Lehigh County, Pennsylvania.
Size: Measures ~3 1/8" in diameter at the base and the top, it is ~5 5/8" at its widest including the spout and handle, and is ~4 1/2" high. The piece weighs a little over one pound.
Maker: Russell R. Stahl.
Marks: Marked "Made By R R Stahl; Mar 20 1947; Weather Clear + Cool" in a circles along the circumference with one word ion the center, which we cannot make out. See Last photo for details.
Condition: The pitcher is in very good condition with no chips, breaks, hairlines or repairs. Careful examination of the surface of the glaze could not identify crazing but because of the surface finish we believe it would be very difficult o see crazing if it was there. Be that as it may, this is a great piece of Southeastern Pennsylvania Redware pottery worthy of a spot in your collection. Please see photos for additional condition information.
