This slip-decorated plate’s central motif and darkened triangles surrounding it are designs associated with Alamance County slip-decorated wares of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The original dish was produced by the Loy/Albright family of potters in Alamance County, North Carolina, c.1800-1825. The design is either supposed to a stylized bird (with the beak at the top) or a flower with two buds and a leaf. Our plate is made by Old Salem Museums & Gardens potters using lead-free glazes, making it both a practical and decorative item for your home. It measures 10.5″ in diameter and will arrive gift boxed with a “Handcrafted Salem 1766” tag.
