Ribbed Creamware Body Sherd

(1762 - 1820)

One fairly thick creamware body sherd from a hollowware vessel such as a bowl or pot. There is some discoloration on the glaze and paste, which may be from burning or a privy. Possibly burned during the Great Fire of 1835 in New York City. The exterior surface of the body is decorated with lathe turned barrel ribs that are 1/4 inch to 3/8 inch apart. Likely part of the same vessel as sherds 256.151, 311.6, 230.70, 230.62, 230.26, 230.47, 230.43, 230.54, 230.4, 230.21, and 230.14.
