It seems likely that these sherds could have been pieces of jars/jugs, pitchers, or bowls.The largest piece of pottery we found in this unit was a large rim piece with red paste and brown lead opaque enameling, which, by its texture, appears to be hand thrown. Introduction What Types of Pottery Are There? Like cave painting, as well as other types of prehistoric art, the invention and development of pottery is a reflection of social, economic and environmental conditions - many of which are still poorly understood - and a significant indicator of a society's cultural development. The earliest form was Chinese Pottery, which first appeared in Jiangxi, to the south of the Yangzi River basin.
Most Indian pottery from Georgia was made of paste that was tempered with common sand.By comparing pottery sherds found in the three Unit 6 SUs, we were able to determine that the three SUs date back to nearly the same time, as we found matching and similar pottery sherds across the SUs.Some of the sherds from different SUS (the three excavated this year and those excavated in the past) have the same paste and glaze and many are similar in their texture and coloring.By the gradual curve of the rim sherd and the enameling on both sides, I would guess that it was once part of a large vessel meant to hold water or other liquids.My best, although very inexperienced, guesses for usage would be that it was either once a part of a water pitcher, or, if the West Room did, in fact, serve as a smith, at some point, that it was used to hold water for cooling hot iron.Now the more common pieces are getting more attention, and prices are starting to rise slowly.Finally, it's fashionable to take another look at Frankoma pottery.Using these source names of Sapulpa and Ada, along with glaze colors and item styles, collectors are able to identify and date Frankoma Pottery.The Great Southwest served as inspiration for many Frankoma works.These are a few of the two dozen or so marks used by the factory from the 1800s onwards. In brief, your piece may be marked "England" rather than "Made in England", or it may say "Newcastle" rather than "Newcastle-on-Tyne". A typical Maling castle mark used from the 1920s through to the factory's closure in 1963. There is information on Coronet Ware and Boumier Ware at the bottom of the page.
