Very Rare Great Road Redware Jar with Copper Decoration, probably Christopher Alexander Haun, Greene County, TN, second quarter 19th century, ovoid jar with tapered shoulder and semi-squared rim, decorated with large vertical streaks of copper glaze against a dark red ground. This jar features the heavy copper drips for which Haun pottery has become known, although we have not seen this exact form and rim construction among his work. A boldly-decorated example of Southern redware. Provenance: Found approximately twenty years ago in Washington County, VA. Rim slumped during the firing. Reglued 2" x 1 1/2" wedge at rim, with related 1 3/4" chip on interior of rim. Several other rim chips. A thin 1 3/4" crack from rim. Glazed surface survives in excellent condition. H 10 7/8".
