Lead Glazed Redware Cookpot Foot

(17th Century)

One fairly coarse-tempered redware foot/base sherd from a three-legged pipkin or cookpot with a colorless lead glaze on both the interior and exterior. The bottom of the foot has heavy wear and is visibly charred. The vessel is possibly Dutch or American in origin. Possibly a "kookpot/grape" and manufactured locally.
