A collection of 16 sherds of wheelmade post-medieval pottery weighing (collectively 90g). The sherds are so fragmentary it is difficult to see any defining features. All of the sherds appear to be post-medieval in date, dating from circa 1700 - 1900. Six of the sherds have been glazed. A small rim sherd (weighing just 3.7g) has a multi-coloured glaze on both surfaces; this sherd has been salt glazed. The other five glazed sherds are all body sherds. Three of these sherds have a shiny mid reddish-brown glaze (10.3g, 11.6g and 14.7g). Another glazed sherd weighing 4.3g has a dark reddish-brown salt glaze on the interior surface and a light reddish-brown glaze on the interior surface. The final glazed sherd (weighing 9.4g) has a shiny mid yellowish-brown glaze on the exterior, whilst the interior surface has a light whitish-grey surface. The other 10 sherds in the collection weigh between 7.2g and 1.7g. These sherds are all extremely fragmentary.
