|Type Name:||SLIPWARE, SGRAFFITO|
Paste is compact and red to light reddish-brown in color. Many examples have a thin grey core.
Vessels are covered with a thin layer of slip, and patterns were incised through the slip to reveal the red body below. A lead glaze covered the slipped surface, giving a yellow color to the slip.
Designs include, birds, animals, portraits, letters, naturalistic scenes, geometric, and floral patterns
|Comments:||This incised slipware variety was probably produced in the North Devon area of England. Although common on 17th century English sites, it is rare on Spanish colonial sites.|
