Slip-Decorated Redware Bowl with Inscription, Dated 1805, possibly Singer Pottery, Haycock Township, PA, 1805, tapered bowl with footed base and semi-rounded rim, decorated with bands of copper and white slip and inscribed in manganese slip, "Anno 1805 / an gottes fegen iB alles gelegen." Center with white slip date, "1805," surrounded by manganese and white slip designs. Interior surface covered in a clear lead glaze. Provenance: Descended in the family of the consignor. Included with this bowl is a letter, dated 12/16/75, stating, "This bowl has been in my family for as long as I can remember. My father (born 7/31/11) remembers it being used in his home (Quakertown, Bucks County, Pa.) by his mother Reba. According to his mother, it was originally from the Singer potter in Haycock Twsp. . ." Apart from this documentation, this bowl would typically be considered a German object, and paperwork like this note is often incorrect. Nevertheless, we cannot rule out the possibility that this is indeed a Singer product. Wear to interior. Two old, smooth rim chips. H 2 7/8" ; Diam. 10 5/8."
