Catalogue Note

Three shards from plate rims, similarly moulded with basketwork and mosaic motifs, are illustrated in Diana Edwards and Rodney Hampson, White Salt-glazed Stoneware of the British Isles, p. 188, fig. 150, and were excavated at the William Bourne site, Burslem in 1974. The authors further discuss on p. 192, that according to the 1740 and 1768 maps of Burslem, the two possible occupants for this site were John Heath and William Burn.
