Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a beautiful antique redware deep pie plate or bowl with great form and color. It would display very well in your collection of antique redware. It is in good condition given it is over 150 years old, just super.

Condition: The plate is in good condition with no cracks, hairlines, or repair. It does have general crazing to the glaze which is difficult to see. The piece has one minor chip to the edge of the rim, which can be seen at 1:00 o'clock in the first photo. The piece also has a few flakes to the glaze on the inside with three that can be seen in the first photo (at 1:00, 4:00 and 9:00 o'clock in the center of the plate). The back of the plate has marking that was done before firing that seem to read VI+. There is also marking with white chalk and general soiling. Finally, as is the case with all these primitive old redware pieces, the bowl has a few of the usual defects you would expect such as pops, slubs, unglazed areas, and uneven spots. Be that as it may, these issues do not to distract from the beauty and quality of the piece. Please view the photos for additional condition information.
