19th Century PA Moravian Slip Decorated Redware Bowl


This is an early 19th century Moravian slip decorated redware footed bowl that is likely Pennsylvania in origin. It is heavily decorated with primitive Moravian designs on the interior of the bowl that include typical intertwined 'S' shaped squiggles around the sides and the remnants of a painted five-sided 'napkin' design at the bottom of the bowl. It was probably made in one of the Moravian communites of Bethlehem, Nazareth, Emmaus, or Lititz, PA. It has a rolled rim and that wonderful foot that lifts it up from the table or cupboard shelf. This was a utilitarian piece and was probably used on a daily basis based on the loss of slip decoration in the middle of the bowl. It has a good sized 9" top diameter and stands 3.5" tall.
