A fragment of a wheel thrown ceramic vessel of post-medieval date. The fragment is a salt-glazed body sherd with a hard and gritty dark grey coloured stoneware fabric with no visible inclusions. The exterior surface is decorated with a dark reddish-brown slip with a recessed circumferential panel featuring a series of raised pellets. The interior surface has a light greyish-brown glaze.

The fragment is 33.4mm long, 25.8mm wide, 6.4mm thick and weighs 6.7g.

Salt-glazed stonewares really became popular in Britain from the early 17th Century onwards. Earlier versions were imported from Germany (at Sieburg, Frechen, Westerwald, Raeren and Cologne) with the British industry picking up in the later 17th Century.

Thanks are extended to Adam Parker, Collections Facilitator at The Yorkshire Museum, for assistance with the identification of this object.
