Description

This redware pipe sagger fragment is an example of kiln furniture used by Moravian potters. A sagger is a clay container used to hold ceramics while they are fired in a kiln. A sagger protects the pottery inside from open flames and debris. This particular sagger is made with stepped sides and has clay pins fastened to the steps which hold glazed pipes in place during firing.

This particular sagger was recovered from feature B4, Aust’s Waster Dump #1. Stanley South dates the use of this waster dump to the period between 1763 and 1771.

It is marked B4-3-3-1 in black ink.
