Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A fragment of Post Medieval Saintonge ware polychrome (green/yellow) chafing dish dating from AD 1550-1600. The remaining fragment consists of part of one of the triangular support knops with applied forward facing mask medallion decoration. The vessel has a green and yellow glaze and buff fabric. The complete vessel would have had areas of alternating green and yellow glaze.

Similar Saintonge chafing dishes are illustrated in Mock (1995:76 Fig 4.6) found at Fort La Tour and Pentagoet, New France (Canada). A parallel can be found in Hurst, Neal and Van Beuningen 1986, plate 5 and fig. 35 no.104.

Other Saintonge ware chafing dishes on the database are LON-9AE1BA, LON-0F55A8 and LON-4118BA.

Found this Ottoman clay pipe on the Thames foreshore today I love the V decoration on the underside.

Small buckle from between 1720-1790 and a squashed button with Tutankhamun’s head.
