Exceptional Large-Sized Redware Charger with Elaborate Yellow Slip Decoration, Philadelphia, PA origin, early 19th century, oversized charger with coggled edge, the interior decorated with straight and wavy bands of yellow slip flanking three shorter trails. Outstanding size, color, and condition. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, from an eighty-year private collection, purchased in the early 1960s from George Samaha. According to Samaha, he acquired the charger from a Pennsylvania-German family who dried apples on it to make schnitzes. This information may account for its remarkable state of preservation. Excellent condition with only minor flaws. Some minor surface wear to interior, including a tiny surface flake. Some very minor chips to bottom edge of rim. A tiny nick to top edge of rim. Diameter 16 1/2".
