Lot 104, Auction 5/30/2017: Roman Redware Pottery Plate

Roman Empire, ca. 2nd to 4th century CE. A wheel thrown, redware plate, with its floor, curved walls, and flat rim nicely delineated upon a ring base. This type of pottery was mass produced in Roman provinces and exported throughout the western part of the Empire. Plates like these were made to be used for displaying and serving foods. Some were decorated, but many, like this one, were simple shapes with a relatively plain finish. Many of them originated in Roman Britain; some came from the famous Pompeii "hoard", a collection of the vessels found in a crate that had arrived in the town yet had not been taken out of their packaging when Mt. Vesuvius erupted on August 23, 79 CE. Size: 8.25" W x 1.25" H (21 cm x 3.2 cm)

Condition: Surface wear with slip loss and encrustation.

Provenance: private Orange County, California USA collection, acquired before 2000
