Ridged Creamware Bowl Body/Rim Sherd

(1762 - 1820)

Molded creamware bowl with lobed exterior with ridges. Thick bodied but finely made. Lightly burnt. Similar form was identified as a salad bowl (Tableware #41) in The Whitehead Catalogue 1798. The complete vessel would have been 8 to 10 inches in diameter, with a pedestal foot. Consists of three sherds that do not mend but are possibly from same vessel. Body sherds most likely would be from the conjecture of the pedestal and body of the bowl.
