Exceptional Large-Sized Redware Charger with Elaborate Yellow Slip Decoration, Philadelphia, PA origin, early 19th century, oversized charger with coggled edge, the interior decorated with straight and wavy bands of yellow slip flanking three shorter trails. Outstanding size, color, and condition. Among the best Philadelphia redware plates that we have ever offered. Provenance: Ex-Collection of Ross Trump and Ed Brown, Medina, OH; previously purchased by Ross Trump in the early 1960s from dealer, George Samaha. According to Samaha, he acquired the charger from a Pennsylvania-German family who dried apples on it to make schnitzes. This information may account for its remarkable state of preservation. Excellent condition with only minor flaws. Some minor surface wear to interior, including a tiny surface flake. Some very minor chips to bottom edge of rim. A tiny nick to top edge of rim. Diameter 16 1/2".
