Circa 1900 majolica blue, green, and brown sponge blend chip-carved pottery Friesland clog. The northern Netherland Friesland provence is famous for chip-carved wood items, and for the less common folk craft pottery forms "kerfsnee aardewerk." This shoe is a delightful example of labor intensive hand art work created at the greenware stage and then captured in the rich glaze colors. Coloring is typical of the high glazed tones of Harlingen and similar towns of the Friesland countryside. Wojtkowski pg 60R4. Size 5.5 x 2.4; 6.3 oz.; Condition report: Excellent. Item #1204; Price $85.
