Combed North Midlands/Staffordshire-Type Slipware Body Sherd

(1660 - 1720s)

One buff bodied North Midlands/Staffordshire Slipware hollowware body sherd coated on both surfaces with a white slip that appears yellow under a lead glaze. The exterior is decorated with a very fine combed design with oxide powdered lines. The red slip used for this decoration appears brown under the glaze. This sherd is likely part of the same vessel as sherds 906.1, 906.4, 906.5, 906.10, 906.41. May be part of a mug.
