This is a Pennsylvania 19th century glazed redware bowl

with cream and green slip trail decoration both on inside and outside the bowl.

The prices of redware pottery reached their peak in 2008 when a bowl like this

would have sold for $500 to $700 retail. Countries like Lithuania began creating reproductions

and shipping them here by the container load and it made all redware suspect at that point, flooded the market and reduced the value.

These prices have declined considerably since then (I know, I once sold these bowls for this much!) with this type

of bowl now having a value of $200 to $300 retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are,,, Ebay and
You can also go to or and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
