Here's a strange note:
Fake Shenandoah Valley Pottery:
< >
(Maine Antique Digest, April 2004, by David Hewet)
> "They're very good fakes, certainly not run-of-the-mill examples.
> One of them, a stamped John Bell bank, was copied right from my
> book." With those words, Dr. H.E. Comstock of Winchester, Virginia,
> the author of The Pottery of the Shenandoah Valley Region (The Museum
> of Early Southern Decorative Arts, 1994), described the newest group
> of faked antique pottery being sold in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and
> probably elsewhere.
