Visual display of the Dish

Dish

  • 1820-1850
  • The front of the dish has a clear lead glaze and green and white slip decoration. The center design is a stylized frond, but migration of the slip makes the motif almost imperceptible. The back of the plate is incised “EK”. The mark occurred after firing, but appears to be nineteenth-century. For a dish with related decoration on the marly, see Linda Carnes-McNaughton, “Solomon Loy: Master Potter of the Carolina Piedmont,” in Ceramics in America, edited by Robert Hunter and Luke Beckerdite (Lebanon, N.H.: University Press of New England, 2010), p. 130, fig. 42.
