Rare Large-Sized Glazed Redware Pan, Stamped "B DODGE / PORTLAND," Benjamin Dodge, Sr. or Jr., Portland, ME, circa 1798-1875, shallow pan with dramatically-flared walls and semi-rounded rim, the interior coated in a lead-and-manganese glaze. Impressed "B. DODGE / PORTLAND" on exterior wall. The first example of redware that we have offered bearing this stamp. Benjamin Dodge, Sr. opened his Portland pottery in 1798 and, upon his death in 1838, the enterprise was continued by his son, Benjamin Dodge, Jr., who potted there until his death in 1875. Spots of glaze loss to interior, most possibly due to in-the-firing pings. Additional minor wear to interior. Some in-the-firing pings to exterior. H 3 1/2" ; Diam. 17 1/2".
