Painted Tin-Glazed Earthenware Tile Sherd

(1600 - 1800)

Three burned and blackened tin-glazed refined earthenware tile sherd with blue painted decoration over white glaze on one surface. Due to its size, the painted pattern cannot be determined, but the pattern appears to be part of the rigging of a ship or multiple ships. The sherds mend but are not mended. One tile is represented.
