Antique Country Primitive Ovoid Redware Pot; 19th Century 2-Handled Folk Pottery Vessel, Jar


Here's an antique, ovoid redware pot that dates back to the mid 19th Century. Glazed on the inside but not on the outside, this primitive piece of pottery has a nice, grungy, original patina. There's a splatter of glaze on one side of the exterior that adds some character. This pot measures 10 inches high with an opening diameter of 5 3/4", widening out to 9 inches in the center and then narrowing back down to 5 1/8" at the bottom.

It's amazingly well-preserved, with two applied handles that somehow escaped damage over the past 150 plus years! It has two old chips in the edge of the bottom and a faint hairline that's tight and doesn't threaten its structural integrity. Redware pottery such as this served a utilitarian purpose in its day and surviving pieces found today usually have flaws from heavy usage.

This pot is in very good shape and as the photos show, displays very nicely. It's a great item to display among country antiques, additional pottery, and even contemporary furnishings. It's a great piece for use as part of a dried flower arrangement. It would also looks wonderful as a centerpiece on a farm table, perhaps with primitive wooden utensils sticking out of it! However it's used, this old redware pot is a great find that will make a statement wherever it's displayed!
