Fine Snow Hill Nunnery Redware Bowl, attributed to John Bell, Waynesboro, PA, circa 1840, with rounded walls and stepped rim molding, the interior decorated in green-and-cream-colored slip with a sun motif featuring striped rays, surrounded by alternating straight and wavy banding. The design on this bowl is unusual among the group removed from the Snow Hill Nunnery in Franklin County, PA in 1997. Its pointed rays surrounding the central circle are smaller and more numerous than those found on most of the bowls recovered from this site, giving the appearance of a sun as opposed to the typical star pattern. Provenance: Originally found among the contents of the Snow Hill Nunnery near Quincy, Franklin County, PA, and sold at Horst Auction in 1997. Interior with some light wear and light knife marks. Some very minor wear to slip on rim. Some dryness to green decoration on central design. Diameter 10 3/4".
