Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a very nice piece with a typical Pennsylvania Dutch shape and look, made at the studios of a master potter with the Pennsylvania Dutch heritage. Needless to say, Mr. Breininger has passed away in December 2011 and pottery made in his studio has become highly desirable.
Condition: The figurine is in very good condition with no cracks, no repairs, no chips, no hairlines, and no repairs. The piece has crazing to the glaze, which is a bit hard to see but is there. The piece has no glaze losses and its colors a fresh and vivid. The piece has some of the normal defects you would expect in a piece of primitive pottery of this type such as spots where the glaze did not fully flow, pops, slubs, and surface roughness. This particular piece has a minimum of such issues. A solid and intact piece which would make a great addition to your collection. Please see photos for additional condition information.
