Large Oval Redware Jar, Federal Swag Pattern
From Stephen Earp Redware, this large oval redware jar with my favorite Federal Swag pattern is a perfect addition to your collection. The Sgraffito design used by immigrant German potters living from Pennsylvania to North Carolina. The technique was also practiced by rural English, French, and Italian potters. Sgraffito pottery is dipped into a white slip, with fanciful designs carved into the surface, exposing the dark clay underneath. The jar is approximately 10¼ inches tall including the lid and 7 inches wide.
All of Stephen Ear’s work is food safe, oven and microwavable, and dishwasher safe. As with all handmade pottery, expect slight variations of size and color.
