What a wonderfully rare yellow ware master salt with rare earthworm decoration. Earthworm decoration is extremely difficult to find on yellowware, and worms in black and white are even more scarce. Black and white slip dots overlap to create a waving worm encircling the body of the bowl of the master salt. Cornflower blue bands outline top and bottom portion of the bowl.
Worm is expertly executed. This decoration was only done by a few master potter's, and even then they rarely took the time to do so.
Light buttery yellow base is accentuated by the richness of the blue bands. Measuring 3" in diameter and 2.25" high, it is a small piece with lots of personality.
Perfect for a collector at any stage.
This as well as the other worm pieces are once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to own some of the best pieces of yellow ware ever produced.Dimensions:
