There is a story told about famed redware potter Greg Shooner: that his wares are so authentic that they have fooled museum experts. It is appropriate then that Historic Bethlehem Museum in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, commissioned Greg Shooner to make this 8 1/2 inch dish, based on shards found there. The sgraffito designs include a saltbox house like those in Historic Bethlehem, a Pennsylvania "Dutch" tulip and a dashed-line rim.

The information on the back of the dish is hand inscribed by Greg Shooner and states: "From archaelogical {sic} shards from Bethlehem Pa. Commissioned by Historic Bethlehem Museum Piece 1985 (signed) Greg Shooner" Stamped into the center of the date is "TURTLECREEK POTTERY," which is now titled The Workshops of David T. Smith, located in Morrow, Ohio. Greg met his wife Mary Spellmire there; she is also a noted potter and partner in Shooner American Redware, located in Oregonia, Ohio. David Smith encouraged them to start their own pottery business. It opened in 1993 and the rest is history.

This red clay dish is about 1 1/2 inches high and weighs 1 pound, 6 ounces. It's lead glazed and purposely distressed, including chips and dings, to give it a realistic time-worn look. Otherwise in great condition, it is perfect for the antiques lover, folk art collector and those restoring/decorating old houses.
