This one looks really, really old. Age has caused cracks and losses, but it has also caused the grain to rise, giving the piece a wonderfully tactile surface. Great patina outside and nice dry interior. Probably had a loose fitting lid (now long gone) resting on the ledge inside. The form is found on mortars of the period, but is rare in a storage vessel. From the Whitby area of Yorkshire, found in an old house in Sands End.
