A small, wide-mouth pot of lead-glazed, coarse earthenware has been partially reconstructed. In its original state, the everted rim opening on the vessel would have measured roughly 12.5 cm (4.6 inches). Paste is pinkish-orange in color and has small white inclusions. The sherd at right shows green interior glazing. Coarse earthenwares such as this one would have been used for cooking or storage jars. Coarse earthenwares, along with stonewares, made up roughly 62% of the French ceramics total (3,553 sherds). TARL Collections.
