Antique Manganese Glazed Redware Tall Vase or Crock with Handle Southeastern PA
Description: Beautiful antique tall crock or vase with a wide opening and a small ear shaped handle. This brown colored vessel is manganese glazed and has black or dark mottling over the brown background. The crock has a round flat base with rising slightly rounded sides ending in a shoulder that is decorated with two parallel incised lines. The shoulder is supporting a neck, ending in a formed plain rim. The crock is brown in color and is manganese glazed as evidenced by the black or dark brown mottling throughout. The vase is glazed on the inside and outside but not on the bottom. The glaze is brown with some reddish or orange tones. The bottom of the piece has the typical coloring and appearance of unglazed redware. The piece, which we believe is from the late 1800s or very early 1900s is in absolutely great condition with no breaks or repairs and some minor losses to the glaze along the top rim. A beautiful crock/vase with great looking coloring making this piece a great addition to your antique redware collection. Please carefully review the photos presented as they are part and parcel of our description.

Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a beautiful antique redware vessel, crock or vase with great form and color. It would display very well in your collection of antique redware. It is in very good condition given it is over 100 years old, just super.
Condition: The vase is in very good condition with no breaks, no repairs, no hairlines, and no chips. The piece has general crazing to the glaze and some minor surface glaze losses along the top rim, which we show in the last few photos. The piece has no chips but has a few small spots of surface losses to the glaze. Finally, as is the case with all these primitive old redware pieces, the crock 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.
