Home Archeology

Every so often we uncover some new shards of ceramic and glass in our garden. Yesterday, it appears as though we have found a match (see figure 2). It seems as though the match is from the Roxbury Semi-Porcelain factory in England, also showing a stamp of Ridgeway. It could date back to the mid 19th century. Our place was built in the early 1900's, so perhaps we are on to something. More to come as the research continues.

  1. So cool. I've found a few shards in our yard - but never a match. I would be over the moon.

    A friend found dozens of ceramic beer bottles in their yard...
