Mocha ware

Mocha ware

Fragments of Mocha ware jugs and bowls. The piece top right is from the base of a mug. The piece with green decoration, bottom right, is from the top of a chamber pot. This type of crockery was cheaply manufactured and widely used throughout the nineteenth century. The sample here came from a large deposit of broken crockery of this type from late Victorian labourers’ rubbish in Kent. Preferred colours for decoration were blue and black. Less common are green and pink.
