Painted Tin-Glazed Lobed Bowl Body Sherd

(Third quarter of the 17th Century)

One buff bodied tin glazed (delft) body sherd from a hollowware vessel. Likely part of a lobed bowl that is coated on both surfaces with a blue-tinted white tin glaze that appears slightly pink on the ridges. The interior surface has an indeterminate hand painted cobalt (blue) design. The tin glaze looks slightly iridescent or patinated. Lobed dishes were made in the Netherlands during the third quarter, more or less, of the 17th century.
