Description

This unfired, polychrome decorated slipware plate is reconstructed from sherds recovered from Gottfried Aust’s Waster Dump #1. South dates the use of this area as a pottery dump to 1763-1771.

The plate body is made of redware, covered with white slip. The object is decorated with a red-brown slip. Three concentric circles ring the plate’s edge and interior. Numerous short lines extend from the plate’s outside edge, inward. The central design features a flower, another possible flower made obscure by missing pieces, and numerous dots. The back of the plate is untreated.

Dimensions: 7.75” Diameter, 1.375” tall.
