VESSEL

Unique ID: PUBLIC-147475

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A fragment of a stoneware vessel, probably a jug, with moulded decoration. The decoration comprises part of the beard from a bearded male face above a bordered cartouche containing script. The letters may be nonesense, and seem to be a retrograde E followed by W T I. The fragment comes from a type of stoneware vessel known as a Bartmann or Bellarmine jug, the bearded face thought to be lampooning Cardinal Bellarmine (1542-1621), and dates from the post-medieval period (1600-1750). The outer surface is dark brown which has been salt-glazed, producing the mottled effect. The interior is a pale grey in colour, with a dull glaze. The fabric is hard-fired and light grey in colour.
