Body sherd of a salt glazed earthenware (Midlands Purple Wear) pottery vessel probably dating from the post medieval period (1600 – 1700). Not enough of the sherds survives to be certain of the form, without this a more certain date is difficult to ascertain. The fabric of the sherd is a hard earthenware with a number of small angular and sub-angular grit and quartz inclusions. There is also a large amount of mica in the fabric. The fabric colour of the sherd is a mid brown purple colour. The glaze on the outer surface is irregular and grey in colour with an uneven – textured – salt glazed surface. The inner surface is glazed with a mottled dark brown green coloured glaze. Due to the smallness of the sherd the diameter of the vessels cannot be estimated. The sherd measures 31.7mm length, 28.3mm width, is 4.8mm thick, and weighs 6.34 grams.
