Rare Redware Bowl with Profuse Slip Decoration, Dated "1834," probably New England origin, 1834, tapered bowl with footed base and squared rim, lavishly-decorated on the interior with alternating straight and wavy lines of whitish slip, the center featuring the date "1834" flanked by graduated stripes. Stylistically-related to the single-color slip-decorated bowls of Goshen, CT potter, Hervey Brooks, this example's discovery in the North Shore area of Massachusetts further suggests it may be a New England product. Decorated deep bowls of this style are considered rare for this region. Provenance: Recently found in the North Shore area of MA. Very nice condition. A 1" in-the-firing lime ping (chip to rim). Additional light wear to rim. Some wear to interior. H 3" ; Diam. 11 3/8".
