    Is this N/A pottery?

    I found this piece a few days ago in an agricultural field where I've found artifacts. I've found quite a few pottery shards there. I'm not sure about this one as it's much thicker than what I've been finding. It's also pretty heavy. I'll add that the area where I found this had the remains of an old home place scattered about. I didn't find any points there, but there were lots of flakes and fire popped rock. Northeast Arkansas ATTACH]254213[/ATTACH]Is this N/A pottery?-img_3405-jpgIs this N/A pottery?-img_3404-jpg

    If that's glaze I'm seeing it's modern. Also it looks very thick. I'd say it's a piece of a crock or churn.

    Looks like the first "artifact" I ever found (or so I thought at the time). Mine was very similar and turned out to be part of an old clay drain pipe.

    Thanks for the replies. I was leaning toward modern.

    That's interesting since the clay structure looks like it could be prehistoric, but the glaze makes it definitely historic. probably as old as the old homestead.

    It does look modern to me, but I've seen a lot of people reject ancient pottery because of the "glaze". There are a lot of burnished (polished) ancient Mississippian pots that can look glazed, but aren't.

    Really thick shiny coatings don't fit ancient US pottery, but you can have some thin slips and polished surfaces on fine pottery.

    Probably a field tile used to help drain fields
    I'm not as good as I once was, but I'm as good once as I ever was.

    when I find stuff like this I still keep it. As a modern day artifact. Looks great in plant beds or indoor plants.
