Here's a very nice piece of old redware pottery up for bids without reserve. This small bowl dates to the 19th Century and is in excellent condition. Only the inside is coated with lead glaze and its a beautiful dark orange color. There are also random, whimsical decorations that were likely brush dabs of a couple of different oxides that created rich green and white colors. The underside of the bowl is unglazed and has a surface thats nicely aged and smooth to the touch. Even the glazed portion of this piece shows plenty of wear and has a great patina. The edge of the rim has no chips but the glaze has been worn off in places. We left this piece of redware just as we found it because the generations of ground-in grime actually adds to its wonderful appearance. It's still even a bit dusty.

This bowl has 6 3/4 inch diameter and is 1 7/8 inches high. There are no chips, hairlines or cracks in this piece. The base was made with two little holes through which a string would pulled through so it could be hung when it wasn't in use. Now it can be hung as a decorative piece in your kitchen where it will adds lots of charm! It would also be a quality addition to a pottery collection. The winning bidder adds postage.
