Artifacts of the week from Durant-Kenrick


Fragments of a large plate

Fragments of a large plate

Among the contenders for the “artifact of the week” award are these fragments of a large plate with a multi-colored, hand painted decoration on a tin glaze. These pieces came from a trash layer about a foot below the modern surface. While we are not absolutely certain of their origin, the color of the ceramic paste and the range of colors used in the decoration suggest that they might be from France.
