Antique Country Primitive Folk Pottery Mottled Redware Pitcher 19th Century


Here’s a scarce, 19th Century redware pitcher in excellent condition. Very folksy, it has a bulbous shape along with a pinched spout and an applied handle. It stands about 9 inches high and its widest point is about 7 inches in diameter. Coated in lead glaze and colored with the use of oxides, it is primarily green with orange/ mustard mottling inside and out. The glaze stops short of the bottom of the piece and the underside is completely unglazed. Around the midsection are three whimsical flower decorations that were hand applied. Normally, rugged, 1800s redware pieces saw plenty of use in their day and surviving examples that turn up today have damage. Remarkably, this pitcher is very well preserved and not cracked or chipped. It’s a beautiful example of utilitarian pottery that wasn’t consider special back in its time, but now has become a very collectible and desirable item!
