Animated Object of the Day: 17th Century White Clay Basketry Impression Vessel Base Fragment from Jamestown

by Bernard K. Means, Director of the Virtual Curation Laboratory

1445_cotton_base

Today’s animation is the base of a white clay basketry impressed vessel recovered archaeologically by  Jamestown Rediscovery. White clay was impressed on the interior of an American Indian basket in the early 17th century, presumably by tobacco pipe maker Robert Cotton.  The basket did not survive the passage of time, but the negative impression did.  Prior to the reconstruction of the mostly complete vessel, the Virtual Curation Laboratory scanned a single sherd, as detailed here. Lauren Volkers and I scanned the reconstructed vessel on March 5, 2014, as detailed here. An insufficient number of sherds existed to connect the base fragment to the rest of the vessel, but it is separately of interest because it does preserve the starting point for the basket.
