Refined Earthenware Base/Body Sherd

(1762 - 1830)

Four mended and extremely discolored refined earthenware base and body sherds, possibly a jar, bottle, ointment pot or similar type of vessel. The exterior has two thin engine-turned lines 0.93 inches from the base. The interior of the vessel has visible turn rings, and the base has a wide, flat footring. Some sherds are burnt and others are heavily stained from the privy. The vessel is possibly creamware or pearlware but is difficult to determine due to the heavy staining.
