Levering Coffee House (18BC51)

Unglazed porcelain marble with barely visible painted floral motif in blue and green. Similar marbles have been found in archaeological contexts dating c. 1850-1910 (Carskadden and Gartley 1990).

Unglazed porcelain marble with a spray of leaves in combination with parallel lines.
This decorative motif occurs throughout period c. 1850-1910 , but the color palette of blue, dark green and red, as well as the fact that it is unglazed, suggests that this marble dates to the 1850s-1860s (Carskadden and Gartley 1990:67).
