Condition: This scarce size pot is in general good condition given its age. It has no crack, hairlines, or repairs. The pot has general crazing to the glaze. The piece also has 1/2" chip at the rim. It also has several flakes where the glaze is lost and showing the redware along the lid ledge. There is also a 5/8" chip at the foot, which unlike the rim chip is more recent and have not darkened with time. There are also some spots of glaze losses along the rim, foot and body of the piece. Finally, the pot is missing its lid. The surface of the pot has the characteristic roughness common in Schofield pottery. The piece also has several of the manufacturing defects you would expect in a primitive piece of redware such as pops, slubs, areas where the glaze did not fully flow, unglazed spots, and uneven spots. Most of these issues can be seen in the photos. A rare piece from the size point of view of a beautiful form which would make a great addition to your antique redware collection.
