Ceramic tableware 1870s

Left: fragments of blue and white willow-pattern plates. One piece is fused within a piece of clinker, showing that a layer of rubbish had been burned at a very high temperature (possibly as fuel to fire a furnace used for some industrial process during the construction of or repairs to the rectory). Right: pieces from a set, including a plate, a cup and an eggcup, all with a ribbed moulded design and green and gold painted decoration to the rim. Discarded at the rectory, 1870s.
