Condition Notes

The pan broke into several pieces and has been glued together.


The pan was found in a crawl space in the Crouch House on Main Street, Odessa, Delaware


The shallow flat-bottomed pan or bowl with canted sides was turned on a potter's wheel.  It has a single, thin, incised line around the outside, about 2/3 from bottom, and is otherwise devoid of decoration.  The thick rim has been reshaped at one place to form a square spout.  The inside of the pan is coated with a black-colored iron glaze to render it water-tight.

The pan exhibits few features to help date or regionalize it.
