Painted Tin-Glazed Earthenware Plate Base Sherd

(1600 - 1800)

One flat, light buff-bodied tin-glazed earthenware plate base sherd with white glaze on the exterior and a cobalt blue painted floral decoration on the interior.  The base has a rounded footring that is covered in tin-glaze and does not have evidence of wear. There is a pierced hole in the footring, indicating that this vessel was likely used for hanging as wall decoration.
