A few thoughts on redware:

Redware was originally designed as utilitarian objects. Typically, these pieces were put into service for many years. As such, redware will generally show signs of heavy wear and usage. Some chips and cracks are usually in evidence, and serve as reminders that redware was first and foremost meant to be functional. These factors should be taken into account when evaluating a piece.
