Very Rare Slip-Decorated Redware Jug, New England origin, 18th century, ovoid jug with footed base and heavily-tooled spout, decorated in yellow slip with a slip-trailed flower blossom flanked by dotted trails, applied under a heavy lead glaze. The bold use of trailed yellow slip relates this jug to a number of fragmented examples of early Charlestown, Massachusetts redware excavated in the city, including at the Three Cranes Tavern site, as well as a few highly important examples surviving above ground. Provenance: From a fifty-year private collection. Excellent condition with very minor wear. H 8 1/4".
