Gilded European Soft Paste Porcelain Rim Sherds

Seven rim sherds from a European or American soft paste porcelain vessel. The interior is decorated with a thick gilded band along the rim with a thinner gold band beneath it. The gilding is painted over either an underglaze painted or overglaze enamel painted solid blue coloring. The sherds are heavily burnt and encrusted, so the type of painted decoration cannot be determined. Some sherds are more heavily burned than others. Consists of two sets of two mended sherds, and three sherds that do not mend. The sherds are likely all from the same vessel.
