Rare and Fine Redware Plate with Elaborate Two-Color Slip Decoration, Philadelphia, PA origin, late 18th or early 19th century, with coggled edge, the lead-glazed interior heavily-decorated with undulating and wavy bands of yellow slip flanking a copper-slip stripe. The significance of this work lies in the extravagant application of its two-color slip as well as in its condition. Relatively few Philadelphia plates of this period have survived. Numerous related works have been excavated in sherds from late 18th and early 19th century Philadelphia contexts. Excellent condition with a 2 1/2" line from rim and very minor surface wear to interior. Diam. 10 1/4".
