Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a very nice Breininger redware piece with a typical Pennsylvania Dutch look made in the studios of the Master potter with the Pennsylvania Dutch heritage. Needless to say, Mr. Breininger has passed away in December 2011 and pottery made in his studios has become highly desirable.
Condition: The eagle is in very good condition with no cracks, no repairs, no chips, or hairlines. The piece has signs of crazing to the glaze, which is difficult to see due to the coloration and the details of the piece. Be that as it may, the piece is beautiful, solid and in great condition. A solid and intact piece which would make a great addition to your collection. Please see photos for additional condition information.
