Placing a date on this piece is far beyond my ability. However, over half a century spent handling, collecting and dealing in antiques has given me a reasonably good feel for something genuinely old and worthy of further investigation. Unfortunately, I very simply have more objets d’art than vie énergique.
Height = 10”
Diameter at the belly below the Shoulder = 8 ¼”
Its condition is “age appropriate.” There are crazing lines and minor losses of glaze, nothing serious by anyone’s definition. At the bottom rim, there is a small chip that has been there long before you, or even your great-grandfather, were even thought of.
All helpful comments regarding age are welcome. I love living on the edge, but I’m not fond of drowning because I accidentally stepped in over my depth.
One way to date this piece with precision would be use a Radiocarbon Accelerator / Mass Spectrometer, but mine is on the fritz. (I think it needs a new head gasket.)
All questions cheerfully answered.
More images and commentary continue below my three "Prime Directives:"
1st: I never, under any circumstances, use a reserve, and rarely do I ask for an opening offer of more than $9.00 (sometimes even less).
2nd: I never end sales early.
3rd: I don’t usually clean, repair, or otherwise monkey around with anything. I push enough dust aside to expose any flaws, but if I discovered it in some dusty attic, you can look forward to a little dust on it when it gets to your house. If it has a flaw or a wart, I'll tell you about it.
So rest easy and have some fun.
