c1680 Jacobean Devon Red Earthenware Storage Bottle


A very nice example of a mid to late 17th century large glazed Devon red earthenware pottery Storage Bottle in good condition.

The bottle has the typical Devon country mellow yellow-red colour with the bulbous body, short handle and small neck. It has an orange glaze only on the inside and on the top outer neck and handle. The base is flat and displays a fair amount of rubbing from the prolonged use. The top lip has a bit of frittering from age and because of the softness of the earthenware. There is a hairline crack along the body, but looks stable.
