Excavated storage jar

Storage jar excavated on Nevis


Photograph of an excavated storage jar. This 18th century storage jar (possibly used for cereals or dried beans) was probably made in North Devon. It still shows evidence of the green glaze with which it would have been partly or wholly covered. This type of pottery, which is tin glazed earthenware is frequently called Delft ware.

Date: 18th century
