Oxford Ware pottery bottle

Accession Number:


Prior to the development of European porcelain, Oxfordshire was a major centre for the production of pottery and ceramic objects.  This led to ceramic objects made in the area being called Oxford Ware.  This fragment of pottery found in Newbury is believed to have been made in the 1300s and used as a wine bottle due to Oxford being an important hub in the trade of imported wine.
