Overglaze Painted Refined Earthenware Body/Rim Sherd

(1762 - 1830)

Discolored refined earthenware body/rim sherd from a straight-sided hollowware vessel. 1/4 inch thick overglaze painted line around the interior rim. Decoration color can not be determined due to heavy staining, but may possibly be brown or red. There is some wear along the edge of the rim. The sherd is possibly creamware or pearlware, but is difficult to determine due to the stained coloring.
