Dr. John Alexander Pope 1906 - 1982
Shape: Small fragment of the wall of a jarlet, small bottle, or small bowl. The shard varies in thickness from 0.3 - 0.4 cm.
Clay: Light gray, fine-bodied stoneware with many very fine and a few large, dark inclusions. The outside of the vessel was roughly finished and reveals many pits. Internally there are virtually no air pockets.
Glaze: Bubbly, lightly crackled, clear glaze having a seawater-green tinge. The glaze is heavily pitted on the outside of the shard, presumably from gasses escaping during firing. The glaze on the inside of the shard is smooth and even.
Decoration: The vessel was decorated with at least two incised rings.
