A mid-19thC Welsh antique Buckley ware /slipware baking dish.
The earthenware body is decorated with an underglaze of brownish-red with applied cream slip decoration.
History of Buckley Ware:
Buckley is situated within the county of Flintshire, North East Wales, approximately six miles from the English border. The area around Buckley has been associated with the production of pottery from the medieval period up to the closure of the last pottery in 1946. The most productive time was from the late 17th through to the late 18th century although there was still an extensive market for Buckley slipware in the 19th century when most of the pieces in the collection were made. Characteristic of Buckley ware are all kinds of large thrown storage vessels for household and dairy use along with press moulded baking dishes with bold slip decoration. Towards the end of the 19th century with the decline in the market for brown household pottery the potters diversified and produced more small decorative pieces.
Condition – good as per the images. The dish has a very minor rim frit. There are no cracks in the body. This dish displays very well.
