More On Water Containers.
I have done a fair amount of research on 17th & 18th century water bottles, & I still find it difficult to know how some items are dated late, & others early. Personally I find little difference if any between some of them, & I can only assume they be dated re the site date. This though does not always hold true, as early items can easily have been used at a later date. However, I show you here a selection from early to late 18th century, & I guess we must date them as such until we can come up with something more positive.
This one is not certain, but simply guessed at 18th century.
