Brown and yellow slipware sherds from the pottery at Midhope, South Yorkshire.

The potteries were active between 1720 and 1828 and were founded by William Gough. A small hamlet built up around the potteries and became known as "Pot House Fold".

Slipware was a popular style of pottery during this period and examples of it have been found in excavations all around Sheffield.
