Rare and Important Slip-Decorated Redware Pitcher, New England origin, early 19th century, delicately-potted, ovoid pitcher with footed base, tooled shoulder, ribbed strap handle, and small, pinched pouring spout; surface covered in a light-celadon, lead-based glaze with dramatic manganese brushwork throughout. This vessel's combination of brilliant coloration and exceptional form rank it among the finest examples of New England redware that we have ever offered. A striking work with a surprisingly modern flair to the decoration. Provenance: A fresh-to-the-market example, from a recently-surfaced Northeastern U.S. collection assembled decades ago. Literature: For a related jar, see Skinner Inc., Personal Collection of Lewis Scranton, May 21, 2016, lot 148. Strong condition with a fork-shaped hairline on underside, which extends 2 1/4" up base of pitcher on front, wear to edges of handle and rim, and some light surface wear. H 7 7/8".
