Visual display of the Bottle


  • 1770-1790
  • This bottle is coated in a dark brown engobe and decorated with reddish-brown, green, and white slip. One side is decorated with a cruciform motif with radiating fleur-de-lis and small dots representing pomettes at the tips. The other side has a single fleur-de-lis similar to those on the ends of seventeenth-century costrels from southwestern France. Variations of the cruciform motif on this bottle occur on pottery from the St. Asaph’s tradition.
