A German immigrant considered one of the most accomplished of the Shenandoah Valley potters, Baecher produced this vase in a primitive Rococo-style scheme. Although he repeatedly employed lowrelief pinwheel flowers and sculptural feeding birds as decoration on his hollow ware, archaeological findings reveal that simple storage jars were the mainstay of his production.
