Chamber pot

1720-1760
Origin: America, Virginia
Colonoware
Archaeological Collection, Colonial Williamsburg Foundation
Acc. No. T067-2013,7
Chamber pot excavated at the Wetherburn’s Tavern site, Williamsburg, Virginia, 5348-ER 1166W.
Label:Colonoware is a low-fired, unglazed earthenware made of local clays. It is encountered at 17th-, 18th-, and 19th-century urban and rural archaeological sites throughout the coastal South. The forms are often utilitarian, but more decorative vessels are occasionally seen. Scholars attribute colonoware to both Native American and African American potters. The vessels they produced were used within both communities, but were also sold to consumers of European ancestry.
