A.P. Donaghho 2 Gallon Salt Glaze Stoneware Snowflake Churn

Circa 1860-1900, Parkersburg, West Virginia

Without question, A.P. Donaghho is West Virginia's most well-known potter and is among the the finest American potters ever to spin clay on the wheel. Donaghho was in business for forty years, and in that time, he threw stoneware in a wide variety of forms and decorated his pieces both freehand and in stencils. Additionally, Donaghho sold his wares to a multitude of merchant, especially in Virginia. Thus, many Virginia merchant jars, jugs, and cake crocks can be attributed to Donaghho. Collectors of Donaghho's stoneware truly have a huge range of items from which to choose.

Standing 12 1/2" tall and 7 1/2" wide, this two gallon snowflake churn is a real gem. First, the two gallon tabletop churn is always desirable because of its rare small size. Second, the churn itself is a desirable form because of its streamlined shape and because of limited production numbers. One can find 100 Donaghho two gallon snowflake storage jars before finding a single two gallon churn in the same pattern. Outstanding condition, with no chips, cracks, or repairs. This is a great example of West Virginia stoneware.
