One (1) basesherd of a wheel thrown ceramic vessel of a local Post Medieval slipware pottery type (17th to 18th Centuries AD).

The sherd measures 51.09mm in length, 49.97mm wide and 10.50mm thick. It weighs 22.6 grams.

The sherd has a pale grey fabric, with a light yellow and dark brown glaze on the internal surface.
