Painted Tin-Glazed Earthenware Base Sherd

(1600 - 1800)

One tin glazed earthenware base sherd, most likely from a plate or other tableware vessel, with a thick white or blue-tinted white glaze on both surfaces. The face is painted with a blue and brown/purple-colored geometric design. The sherd is very burnt and the paste color cannot be determined. The sherd has a small section of the footring remaining, which appears worn.
