One bodysherd of a wheel thrown ceramic vessel of a Early Post Medieval German stoneware, of 15th to 17th Century dating.

The sherd measures 48.92mm in length, 35.81mm wide and 7.36mm thick. It weighs 15.9 grams.

The sherd consists of a hard pale grey stoneware fabric, with mottled brown salt glaze on the exterior. This type of pottery was typically produced between 15th and 17th Centuries AD, over in the Rhineland (Germany). The sherd is probably from a drinking vessel, possibly a Bellarmine jug type.
