Identification of Sea Pottery?

I found a big piece of sea pottery on the beach yesterday, and I was just wondering about the time period this piece may have come from.

Thank you for the help,



Hi Matthew,

Here is a highly-recommended book on identifying blue and white pottery. It comes in 2 volumes:

Dictionary of Blue & White Printed Pottery 1780-1880

Unfortunately, it only covers pottery before 1880.

What an incredible find. I bet when you saw it you were stunned.

Well done and I hope you get to identify just where it came from etc.

Love to hear if you do.
