2002 Glazed Redware Figurine Elephant Standing Yellow Blanket Breininger Pottery
Origin: Robesonia, Berks County, Pennsylvania.
Size: The piece measures ~4" long, ~1 1/2" at its widest, ~3" high, and weighs about 12.5 ounces.
Maker: Lester Breininger.
Marks: Marked "Breininger Pottery, PA, 2002" incised on the bottom of the base.
Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a very nice Breininger 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. and no hairlines. The piece has general crazing to the glaze, which is minimal and a bit hard to see but is there. 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.
