Group of nine redware stoneware ceramic pottery plates including:

Set of four small undecorated plates with an impressed number 18 along the underside.

Set of two plates with manganese daubed decoration dated 1989, titled "Artifacts," and illegibly initialed along the underside.

One plate by Joel Huntley (J. Huntley) (American, 20th c.), Wisconsin Pottery. Decorated with a German saying and a bird, the underside with incised decoration. Dated 1995 with an English translation of the German saying along the top reading "Fortune and Misfortune are our breakfast every morning."

One small plate with a flower and a saying reading "Present for a friend," along the top. Incised along the underside "Breininger Pottery Robesonia, Pa. March 5, 2000 Beautiful day!"

One large charger by Greg Shooner (American, 20th c.) with an incised signature and dated 1999 along the underside. With impressed marks reading "Mary Spellmire-Shooner," and "Shooner American Redware Oregonia, OH."

Diameter ranges from 7 in to 15 in.


The plates are in generally good condition. Most of the pieces have crazing throughout except for the small yellow dish with a flower pattern. The yellow dish has wear and 4 cracks that length ranges from 1/8 inch to 1/4 inch to the rim. By the left flower, there is a network of minute cracks in the glazing, only visible under UV light. Along its underside, there is a network of white accretions and a 3/4 inch long graphite mark. In addition, there are two areas of discoloration, each sizing 3/4 inch and 1/2 inch.
Four small brown dishes, captured to the right in the lot listing, have crazing throughout and firing flaws that created surface bubbles. Wear throughout all four pieces; dust collected to their underside. One of them has an area that has 1 3/4 inches long residue; it also has a 3 inches long area with glazing flaws that shows an underneath stoneware, most likely to be original to the piece, along the rim. Another dish has a chip to the rim, 1/2 inch long. Another dish has a 1 1/4 inch tape residue along its surface and a 3 inches long area that has a line of minute chips. The other dish has a 1 inch separation to the glaze that is discolored dark since dust collected to its recessed part.
The bird plate, captured right top, shows heavy wear and crazing throughout. It has wear along the rim; there is a 3/4 inch long loss to the rim; there is a 1 1/2 inch long dent that is discolored black. Wear to the underside, consistent with its age and use. Along its underside, there is a 1 1/2 inch long stretch.
Two salad dishes, captured left, with black dot patterns have crazing throughout. Both have wear to their underside. One of them has a noticeable yet minute bubble on the surface due to firing flaws near its rim, which is most likely to be original to the piece. There is an uneven surface, 1 1/4 inch long, to the rim. Along its underside, there are white accretions throughout and adhesive residue. The other dish has 2 inches big residue near its rim; on the other side of the rim, there is another area with residue that measures 1 inch. Along its underside, there is a 2 inch big residue.
The big plate, captured in the center, has crazing and wear throughout. There are major firing flaws that show the underneath stoneware in the center. There are losses along the rim- the biggest loss being 3/4 inch long. There is a chip along the underside, measuring 1/4 inch.
