Mochaware Large Barrel Shaped Pitcher

About

A large mochaware barrel shaped pitcher made of pearl-glazed creamware in the early 19th century. Each mochaware piece is distinctive and this particular pitcher has a unique and unexpected quality: underneath the handle we can see where the artist began the wavy trailed slip lines (this unusual detail can be seen most clearly in image #3.) To make these wavy lines the artist used three quills which he dipped in the brown slip and then applied to the pitcher as he turned the lathe. For me, it is the contrast between the wavy lines applied with the quills and the straight lines surrounding them which makes this jug so visually exciting . Near the top of the jug is a grooved band decorated with green glaze. The handle has acanthus leaf terminals. While it was designed and used as a pitcher it would be beautiful with flowers. Dimensions: 7 inches tall x 8.25 inches deep including the handle x 5.5 inches diameter at the widest point Condition: Excellent with a few tiny frits along the top and bottom edges. Price: $2400 For more information on this slip trailing process see chapter 7 of Jonathan Rickard's "Moca and Related Dipped Wares, 1770-1939".
