Finds from Bridgnorth
A rather gaudy selection showing the wide range of ceramics dumped in the river bylet.
Some lovely late 17th century slipware.
A selection of 19th century glass bottles, including Wollstein, Ironbridge (centre).
Malthouse drying floor tiles, 19th century. The '4-hole' design to the rear is probably the earliest.
Maws 'sandwich' encaustic tile, dated to between 1860 and 1870 and made at their works in Benthall.
The back of the tile - confirming the date range before the move to their Jackfield works in 1883.
Many thanks to Dr. Tony Herbert and Michael Vanns for information on the Maws Tile.
