Manor Ware pottery from Sheffield Manor Lodge.
The manor started as a small hunting lodge in a medieval deer park. By the 1500s a large house had been built. Mary Queen of Scots spent some of her years of imprisonment here.
The house was abandoned and the land reused from the 1700s. This pottery was produced on the site by John Fox who had a kiln at the Manor. It is characterised by its distinctive brown glaze.
Some of the pottery is on display at Sheffield Manor Lodge Discovery Centre.Display Location:
