Green-ish Pottery Sherd

Post by TheAndyA » Tue Oct 29, 2019 8:01 pm

A surface find from yesterday afternoon, I'd also found an Elizabeth I Hammered and what I think may be a Tudor buckle fragment nearby. (TBC). Oh I also picked up a thick dark coloured glass gragment too.

It has a green/brown glazed surface on one side and what looks like the inner surface is un-glazed.

I'm wondering which era this sherd might be from? x;

Medieval green glaze pot sherd. Always unglazed on the inside of the vessel.

Oh wow, thanks Mike and Cath. I'm finding the Pottery quite fascinating, it's very useful to have another method of discovering the history of a location. ::g

Very similar to a piece I found on a job a few years back. The building was raised in the mid-15thC and I found it smack in the middle of the original footings. Well, I say "footings" when that should really read "few lumps of flint piled together." But it worked and the building's as good today as it was when it was built.

A pox on modern Building Regs, I say. But I'll stop saying anything else or I'll be way off topic and due for a severe wigging ::g

I doubt 13-14th century, as (salt) glazing became common in the 15th century.

This looks like salt glazing, so old, 15/16th century, early glazed i will confirm. ::g

Agreed if it was salt glazed but it isn’t. This has a much higher shine and smoother finish than salt glazed items ::g

What kind of glazing would you name it then if i may ask?

If so as you say then it would be even less old? Cause as far as i know salt glaze was the first ever oldest pottery glazing. And to me it for sure is glazed.

Glazed pottery goes back a long way. Here’s a link to some 13th century high glazed pottery https://www.britishmuseum.org/research/ ... jug&page=1

On my sites I have glazed pottery back to pre conquest times - 10th century. It goes back way before then I think but not sure when it arrived in England ::g

Thanks for your explanation Oxgirl. Brought me new knowledge. ::g

I think we've and especially i confronted the regional gap i have to keep in mind.
On europe mainland glazing history is as i described above.

So TheAndyA, you can neglect my reactions. rl;
Good luck hunting.
