Porter bottle (fragment)

Porter bottle (fragment)

Fragment of a salt-glazed porter bottle embossed with the remains of the words ‘Wine and Spirit Merchant’, and beneath this, ‘Eye’ (in Suffolk). The name of the proprietor, which would have formed the first line of text, is missing. Bottles of this sort were supposed to be returned to the proprietor, who would re-fill them.
