'Dot' Slip Ware 1670-1795

The official cute nick name of this pottery secures these rare mudlarking finds a separate post. The dots apparently were often applied to rims and necks and could be light or dark.

In the first half of the 17th century it was produced in Wrotham in Kent and in London and then Staffordshire until end of the 18th century.
