Very Rare Redware Dish with Spiraling Slip Decoration, NC origin, circa 1820-1850, thinly-potted dish with narrow base and dramatically-flared walls, the lead-glazed interior decorated with a continuous spiral of manganese slip over a light-orange ground. Two related examples with this spiraled decoration are illustrated in the University of Wisconsin North Carolina Earthenware Collection Database, one of essentially identical form in a private collection and another deep bowl in the collection of Old Salem Museum and Gardens, Winston-Salem, NC. This is the first North Carolina redware dish with this design that we have offered. Very nice condition, particularly for pieces from this region. Wear to interior and a flake to a spot of slip in the well. H 2 1/2"; Diam. 10 5/8".
