Negative Printed Pearlware Bowl Rim

(1821 - 1840)

A blue negative printed hollowware rim sherd, likely from a basin. Printed "in reverse" to most vessels, negative printed wares used dark-colored backgrounds upon which design elements were rendered in white. This sherd uses interior and exterior decoration, with the extant exterior design consisting of a dark border and white line visible just below the rim. The interior rim uses a floral pattern surrounded by a solid white and blue border.
