Lead Glazed Redware Cookpot

(17th Century)

One handle, rim and large body sherd from a bulbous redware cookpot. The handle has a pinched top and a thumb-print depressed base. The lead glaze is mottled brown/colorless in color and is on both the interior and exterior of the cookpot. The vessel consists of two sherds that mend but are not mended. The vessel is likely Dutch or American in origin. Possibly a "kookpotten" or "kookpot/grape" and manufactured locally.
