Fine Slip-Decorated Redware Bowl, possibly North Carolina origin, second quarter 19th century, with rounded sides and semi-rounded rim molding, decorated in manganese and cream-colored slip with triangular and teardrop-shaped designs filled with spots and stylized flower blossoms. Copper and cream-colored slip banding above and below. The distinctive triangular and teardrop-shaped designs, as well as the use of slip spotting, are most commonly seen in the work of Solomon Loy of Alamance County, North Carolina. Although this bowl is not a Loy piece, it was possibly made by a related potter within the Alamance County school. Remarkable, excellent condition with some very minor rim wear. H 2 3/8" ; Diameter 7 1/8".
