This plate is attributed to Johannes Neis in Upper Salford Township, Montgomery County, 1786. Our adaptation is an impressive copy of the early original. It is sgraffito decorated with vibrant copper and manganese accents. It has apparent crackle and a warm manganese speckled glaze. The german border translates to - Our maid, the ugly pig, always wanted to be a housewife. O, you ugly Slut. 1786. This is affectionately known as The Slut Plate. Artist - Betty Lou Viox. Artist - Betty Lou Viox. The potters of Pennsylvania were the most prolific and artistic of all American Redware potters. Their forms were thrown, slabbed, coiled and hand built. Their decoration consisted of simple solid color glazes, to the multicolored, very detailed slip trailed and sgraffito ware highly prized by collectors today. The simple red slab plate with the yellow, wavy slip lines is also a classic Pennsylvania pottery form.
