Afternoon All,
I picked this up on a site that has a lot of roman pottery remains... (I'm not assuming this is) but it is unlike any i have found on it previously as it has a black glaze... I hope the photos can give a vague impression... it looks like the shape of a rim of sorts.
Any help would be much appreciated... is it too far fetched to think it might be Greek??!!
All the Best
Alexander

Looks post medieval to me as the glaze is shiny and even . My guess would by Stuart or more modern :thumbsup:

I’ve got a few bits of broken pot with black glaze but on the inside only. Given the context of where they were found I’ve assumed them to be early 1800’s but never had confirmation.

Nineteenth century Midlands Blackware of the same kind found in Halifax Wakefield Burslem Jackfield Buckley and so many pre-industrial or unmodernised country potteries.
Wetheriggs in Cumbria and a few minor potteries in Herefordshire across to Leics/Derbys/Notts and several in West Yorks and North Yorks, but lots of mentions of the thick shiny lead glaze with an iron and usually traces of manganese over a red clay and high-fired to 1080 celsius in brick kilns and coal-fired in saggers.
