PITCHER PRESENTS WELL FOR GARTH’S
Review by the Staff, Antiques and The Arts Weekly
COLUMBUS, OHIO –
The top lot of nearly 414 lots in Garth’s Auctioneers & Appraiser’s September 12 Country Americana sale was an American presentation yellow clay pitcher with Albany slip and an engraved design of flowers with the inscription, “Mrs. R. Pannabaker from Charles 1891.” Garth’s had previously sold the pitcher in 2004 and it had provenance to Robert Treichler and Susan and Mark Laracy. It had also been published in F. Robert Treichler’s 2011 book A History of Northeast Ohio Stoneware, and then again in 2015, in his More History of Ohio Stoneware. Bidding on the lot opened at $500 with online and absentee bids but took off with competition from two phone bidders; in the end, however, a Midwestern collector/dealer bidding in the room prevailed, taking it home for $6,120.
