Checker Board             catalog #007

This design is borrowed from an 18th century sgraffito-decorated slipware pot. There is room on the back side for the owner's name. Many of the original buckets were painted by self-taught itinerant painters, often trading their naive skills for room and board in lieu of coin. Some buckets, however, were sold with the decorative design already applied, needing only a painter to fill in the owner's name and date.
