Description: A nice, unusual and rather rare glazed green colored redware bottle. This elongated cucumber shaped bottle was made by Lester Breininger in 1976. The bottle is equipped with a cork to stopper it. It i light green on color with darker green highlights. It is glazed inside and out and truly looks great. It is marked in black under glaze near the top with the letters LB76 for Lester Breininger 1976. The bottle represents an early example of Breininger's work when he was making the redware items himself before he hired a staff to help him make his product. This piece is very unusual and in over 25 years of purchasing and collecting redware we never saw a similar item. A great piece of redware pottery made by the master potter himself. Please carefully view photos as they are part and parcel of our description.

In addition, the piece has several scratches to the surface and minor glaze losses on the surface.
