The blue design on this stoneware shot glass is inspired by fragments of eighteenth-century pottery uncovered in Williamsburg during archaeological excavations. Understandably, the heaviest concentrations of shards were found around tavern sites, where the originals would have been used for beer and cider.
The ornamentation-simple incised designs colored with cobalt blue-is a style developed in the Rhineland during the late 16th century. Throughout the colonial period, this style was the standard for tavernware in England and her colonies. The salt glaze is produced by throwing salt into a hot kiln during the firing process. The resulting sodium gas bonds with the clay bodies to produce a distinctive glassy coating.
