This is a nice early redware dish or shallow pie pan or plate. It was made during the 1800’s. It has a reddish brown glaze.
The pan measures approximately 8 1/4” in diameter and 1 1/2” deep.
It has a chip on the rim that measures approximately 1 1/4” wide. There is an additional loss on the rim. There is a small patch where the glaze has flaked.
Redware was primarily used for utilitarian kitchen items during the seventeen and eighteen hundreds. Much of the early American redware was made in Pennsylvania. Gradually ornamentation emerged and slip decorated and sgraffito items became sought after.
