Description

This redware jug was recovered in the bisque state. It likely broke during the first firing and was never glazed. The body is only .125” thick. The reddish-buff clay is typical of that mined by Aust in Bethabara. A number of similar fragments were recovered from other building sites, but with dark brown glazing on both the interior and exterior.

This piece was recovered from feature B51, Aust’s Waster Dump #2, indicating it was made between 1756 and 1760. A stopper fitting the neck of this jug was recovered from Aust's later Waster Dump #1. This same jug style continued to be made well into the 19th century.

The jug is labelled B51-4-1-63 in black ink on the interior of the base.

Dimensions: 8.75” tall, 6.75” dia at widest point.
