I want to thank you for stopping by to give my pottery consideration. I am offering this early piece of Jugtown Ware from the 1920's. I would consider this a pie plate instead of a dirt dish. It is 2" deep and 9 1/2" across. It is very early and has beautiful blue specs throughout. It does have a glaze chip which took a very little piece of they clay with it. Other that the chip, it is in very good shape. I guess we would have some chips too if we were almost 100 yrs old. This piece is from Seagrove, North Carolina. In my opinion the pottery capital of the universe. Thank you for stopping by and sharing in a little bit of history. thank you and happy bidding. P.S. Before they called them pie dishes. They were dirt dishes. reference "The traditional Potters of Seagrove, North Carolina: Robert C Locke.
