Antique AMERICAN ROCKINGHAM RIBBED BOWL Circa 1880 - 1900
Rockingham, in the United States, is a primarily a yellowware pottery with a brown glaze that resembles tortoiseshell. It was made from 1840 to 1900 by many American potteries. Colors range from butterscotch, caramel, light reddish brown, to dark reddish brown. Often the glazed appears to be sponged or splattered on the pottery but it can often be found in a dark brown glaze completely covering piece. Following its introduction in 1840, it became a preferred pottery for the kitchen over redware because of its durability.
This is a lovely example of RIBBED ROUND BOWL with SCALLOPED RIM. It is covered with a heavy random splatted application of a ROCKINGHAM glaze in a dark caramel to medium brown hue. The outside is nearly covered with glaze. Ribs are random sizes measuring approximately ¾” to 1" wide. Measures 6 ½” by 2 ½” high and weighs just under one-pound and 8 ounces.
The piece is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or crazing.
