Kopp was a known production potter in the Maryland area and all his known pieces are stamped—this is the only known with freehand script signature and by far the finest example of his documented work. Redware with a beautiful mottled manganese glaze. Snake handle with a portrait bust spout (possibly a nod to his German heritage - reminds me of the face on a Bellarmine jug).
Signed on bottom in incised script “L. Kopp.”
Provenance: Kopp family by descent; Robert Girouard, Peter Brams Collection
