Pieces of Victorian plant pot

I am not rubbish!


The broken pieces of orange plant pot are almost identical to the ceramic plant pots we still use today except that the rim is more rounded. Had these joining pieces been found in a modern garden they would almost certainly have been dismissed as modern rubbish. The Victorian layer in which these broken pieces and all the other broken pieces of pottery were found shows that they are about 130 years old.
