Extremely Rare 1853 Signed Boston Earthen Ware Nappy Rockingham Yellow Ware
Here we have one of the rarest pieces of yellow ware I have ever seen or listed. This nappy is signed on the base with the impressed mark “BOSTON EARTHEN / WARE / MANUF’G CO”. This pottery was established in Boston, MA in 1853 and operated and supervised by Frederick Mear until 1857. This is the same potter who earlier co-owned and operated the East Liverpool, OH pottery of “Salt & Mear” from 1842 – 1850. This nappy measures 10″ in diameter by 2 ½” in height. The nappy is decorated with a Rockingham spatter glaze. The glaze is worn on the outside edge of the base from use and there is a darkened chip on the inside edge of the rim. There are also two short lines on the inside that don’t go through. This is extremely rare and is only one of three pieces now known to exist by this pottery company. This is so rare that it belongs in a museum, in fact, the only other known nappy by this pottery is part of the William T. Brandon Collection of American Redware and Ceramics at the Historic Deerfield Museum. That nappy is described in the June 1924 issue of Antiques Magazine. This is an extremely rare piece of early American pottery that would be prized by any advanced collector or museum. This item is in the category “Pottery & Glass\Decorative Cookware, Dinnerware & Serveware\Plates”. The seller is “yellow.fever” and is located in this country: US.
