Antique Country Primitive Slip Decorated Redware Pitcher; 1800s Folk Pottery Old For Sale

Antique Country Primitive Slip Decorated Redware Pitcher; 1800s Folk Pottery Old

Here's a mid 19th Century redware pottery pitcher in very good overall condition. Bulbous in shape, this rare piece measures 10 1/4 inches high and has a 4 3/8 inch bottom diameter, and a top diameter that measures 5 1/4 inches across, including the spout. The midsection is about 7 1/2 inches across, excluding the handle. All of the interior and most of the exterior are glazed and are a beautiful, speckled, dark orange (almost honey brown) color. Lower portions of this piece including the underside are unglazed and have a nice, original, grungy patina that shows lots of age. These unglazed areas have generations of ground in dirt and grime that adds to its charm. But the most eye catching features on this old pitcher are the whimsical slip decorations all around the exterior. A large, hand painted flower and leaves in brown, yellow, and two shades of green adorn the front and sides.

Although this piece has seen plenty of use in its 160+ years, it's in very good shape. It does have surface wear/loss of glaze on the bottom of the inside as well as just under the spout. There's typical chipping around the opening rim and the edge around the bottom from regular usage back in its time. Old flaws like these help to authenticate the true age of this piece. There are no cracks, hairlines, or repairs. Heavier than it looks, this is a rugged, solid piece of pottery that's well-preserved and quite beautiful. It sells to the highest buyer without reserve.
