Exceptional Lidded Redware Jar with Profuse Two-Color Slip Decoration, possibly PA, OH, or Southern origin, 19th century, cylindrical jar with tapered shoulder and narrow, rounded mouth, lavishly-decorated around the body with alternating straight and wavy trails of copper and manganese slip under a clear lead glaze. Includes original copper-slip-decorated redware lid with raised edge, pointed finial, and lead-glazed surface. Among the most heavily-decorated examples of American redware that we have seen. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, which recently surfaced in Florida. The family it descended in had ancestral ties to the states of Pennsylvania and Ohio. The decoration on this jar, however, has a strong Southern appearance related to North Carolina redware. Jar in excellent condition with a small chip and some wear to interior of rim, as well as a small, 3/8" in-the-firing contact mark to one side. Glazed surface survives in immaculate condition. Chips to edge of lid. H (including lid) 7".
