Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a beautiful antique redware deep pie plate or bowlwith 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 repair, which we can identify. It has no cracks or hairlines. It does have general crazing to the glaze which is dificult to see. The piece also has several old chips to the rim, which can also be seen in the photos. The piece also has an area of different coloring at the rim which we show in the last photo. We are not certain what it is or if it is a spot that was repaired or modified. Be that as it may, it is not objectionable and the plate is still great looking and solid. 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.
