This glorious redware gonic NH origin bean pot dates from 1850 to 1880 and exhibits orange halo attributes sporting an olive green glaze. It came from a Berks County farmhouse in Eastern Pennsylvania. What a wonderful piece to display during the autumn season as the colors are so appropriate for this time of year! There are no cracks to report. However the lid has several chips present as shown.
The applied handle has been professionally restored at one point. Another interesting feature worth mentioning is the introduction of manganese decoration located just under the pronounced molded rim. The inside has “hit and miss” areas where some of the glaze did not adhere.
This piece displays well, has a great overall appearance and would be a nice addition to your existing redware collection. Gonic pottery is not easily found so don’t hesitate if you favor this beautiful item!
Overall height is 8 ¾” tall including the knob on the lid, measures 4 ¾” across the top and measures a little over 4 ¾” across the bottom.
