A Sgraffito Decorated
An Original by
Lehigh County, Pennsylvania
Tulip in an Urn -
A large and heavy handmade octagonal
redware slip decorated charger. A rich deep reddish brown with pale
yellow and green slip. The design at the center is of a Tulip Flower
in an urn with incised drape and line bands and mottled green accents. A
charming design based on one of the early Pennsylvania Redware potters of
the 18th and early 19th centuries.
A gorgeous glaze and a simply beautiful
piece of revivalist redware. The impresed mark of James C. Seagraves
on the reverse.
