Selection of various types of medieval pottery. The museum of London's collection of medieval pottery is unique. This group of pottery, all found in London, is a small selection of a range of ordinary kitchen and tableware available to Londoners in the late 13th and early 14th centuries. The tall jars at the back come from kilns close to the medieval city. The small condiment dish, the drinking horn on the foreground and the conical jug with the human face (left) were all made in Kingston-upon-Thames, Surrey. The jug with stripped decoration (right) was made at Mill Green, near Chelmsford in Essex. The jug in the centre, of fine white clay with painted shields, is from the region of Saintes in Western France and probably came to London with the wine trade from Bordeaux.
1260 AD - 1350 AD
