Here we have a very rare 1800s banded bowl. The bowl is elegant in the simplicity of the decoration, a prominent wide white band with two narrow black bands below it. This is one of several graduated bowls produced with this decoration. The bowl is finely molded with a prominent rounded rim and base. These features and the banding are unique to bowls produced by J.
In their day, Jeffords was the Tiffany of yellow ware pottery production, no other American potter approached the quality of what Jeffords was able to produce. This would have been an early bowl produced by Jeffords. Measuring 11 ½ in diameter by 5 ½ in height, the bowl is in near mint condition with only hairlines in the bottom that dont detract and one on the side.
There are three marks on the underside of the base from the firing process, these are not damage. Jeffords is known for producing large high quality bowls, in all my years of collecting I have never seen another bowl of this size potted by Jeffords. These larger Jeffords bowls are very impressive and collectable. Any advanced collector would be pleased to add this bowl to their yellow ware collection.
