Description: A nice glazed and slip decorated redware small round pie plate. The plate has a 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 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 October 8, 1992. This plate is small in size measuring about ~6 3/4" in diameter and is ~1 1/8" 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.
