1986 Redware Glazed Slip Decorated Large Plate Brown Yellow and Green By Lester Breininger
Description: A nice glazed and slip decorated redware large round pie plate. The plate has a slightly flat base with flared slightly rounded sides rising to a lightly coggled edge. The plate is decorated with yellow slip over the brown background with two green sponged parallel lines. Beautiful and very unusual but still reminiscent of very early redware plates from the east coast from Pennsylvania to Virginia. The plate was made by Lester Breininger himself on September 6, 1986. This plate is rather large in size measuring about ~10 1/4" in diameter and is ~1 1/2" high. The plate is glazed on the inside but not on the back. The unglazed back has the characteristic color of unglazed redware and is signed by the master himself. Please carefully view photos as they are part and parcel of our description.
