Antique Country Primitive Redware Pottery Pitcher; Slip Decorated, Lead Glazed, 19th Century, Mottled, Old Green Jug


Looking for a quality piece to decorate your home or add to a pottery collection? Check out this early redware pitcher we found while clearing out the cellar of an old farmhouse! It dates to the mid-19th Century, has a bulbous shape, and is in very good condition! Colored with oxides and lead glazed, this piece has whimsical floral slip decorations around its midsection. Its primarily green inside and out and has wonderful, mustard yellow colored mottling in random places. The area near the bottom edge, as well as the underside, are not glazed. Those portions have a dry, grungy patina from usage and the passage of time. Overall, this very old pitcher is in very good condition considering its age and utilitarian purpose. There is a very small chip in the opening rim and a tight hairline at the bottom as pictured that's not a structural threat. This piece is 9 inches high with a bottom diameter of 4 inches and an opening that measures 5 1/8 inches wide, across the spout. Its widest point in the middle is about 6 3/4 inches and it weighs nearly 3 pounds. It displays wonderfully and is a rare item. Guaranteed old and authentic, this redware pitcher is certainly a unique piece of pottery that's sure to command attention wherever its displayed!
