Exceptional Redware Loaf Dish with Three-Color Marbled Slip Decoration, Connecticut origin, early 19th century, oval loaf dish with coggled edge, the interior decorated with an exuberant joggled design in cream, green, and brown slip, applied over an orange clay ground with clear lead overglaze. This example features one of the most striking glaze schemes found on New England redware. A remarkable work in terms of color, condition, and decorative technique, this loaf dish is believed to be the finest example of its kind in existence. Immaculate, essentially-unused condition with minimal wear, extremely rare for this form. A few matte-finished spots to the surface near the edge were probably created in the firing. L 14 1/2".
