|Comments:||Simple, slip-trailed redware vessels were produced at several locations in the Anglo-American colonies after 1750, initially by German potters who emigrated to Pennsylvania, New England and North Carolina. The simple geometric band and loop decoration on utilitarian forms is often referred to as "Philadelphia style", although as noted such wares were made in a number of centers in Eastern North America. The are most common from the third quarter of the eighteenth century into the first decades of the nineteenth century.|
