Very Rare Open-Handled Redware Jar with Incised Sine Wave Decoration, possibly Southwestern VA, early to mid 19th century, ovoid jar with footed base, narrow mouth, and ribbed strap handles, the shoulder and midsection decorated with a distinctive wavy line design between arched incising. The strap-handled form of this jar is closely-related to that produced along the Great Wagon Road of Southwestern Virginia and Eastern Tennessee. Additionally, the distinctive incising on this jar is very simlar to that seen on work produced at the Hinkle-Spigle Pottery of Botetourt County, Virginia, circa 1830-1850. Surface decorated with splashed manganese and covered in a clear lead glaze. Rim chip. Wear to edge of one handle. A small chip to opposite handle. Minor wear to interior of rim. H 9 1/4".
