EARTHENWARE AND SALT GLAZING
Earthenware pottery is made from nonwhite clay and is fired at lower temperatures than porcelain. The color of clay is determined by the amount of minerals present in the clay, especially iron. Red and yellow clays require tin or lead glazes in order to hold water. Stoneware, a type of grey clay mixed with vitreous material, is impermeable to water without a glaze. Stoneware is often given an interesting orange peel-type texture during the firing process by throwing rock salt into the kiln. This process is called salt glazing.
In overall average condition. Antique and vintage items by their very nature show normal wear to finish and miscellaneous scratches, nicks, and dings due to age and use. As we define 'average condition' relative the stated age of the piece, we would expect to see quite a few 'character marks' consistent with that age and could include significant nicks or dings to a wooden, metal, enamel, or chalkware object, significant wear to a painted surface, speckling on a mirror, crazing, wear to gilding, or manufacturing glaze skips in ceramic finish, significant wear to a label, and original decorative trim may be missing. If ceramic/porcelain restoration has been done, it is of museum-quality so that it is hardly discernible and would be mentioned in the listing. Average condition may also include chips or cracks in ceramic or marble, which may or may not be specifically noted in the listing.
There are two hairline cracks radiating from the rim and miscellaneous chips and wear to the glaze from years of use. Has a great vintage patina!

The Fine Print
Because EuroLux Antiques maintains its own website and lists on other online sites, while also operating a physical store location in Newberry, South Carolina, we reserve the right to end any listing early if it has not been purchased outright or no bids have been placed upon the item. On occasion, a piece listed on a website may no longer be available. We do our best to maintain the accuracy of our inventory records but we often have customers interested in the same item at the same time. In those cases, we defer to the customer who placed the earlier order. We apologize in advance by any inconvenience this may cause. Because of this, we encourage all of our buyers to purchase the item as quickly as possible so that your treasured find doesn't sell elsewhere to someone else. Happy browsing and thanks! Aimee & Greg Talbot at EuroLux Antiques.
