"Puzzle Jug" (left) and Plate From the Midden.
Ceramics from the midden include fragments of many expensive tin-glazed
(Delft) vessels. The "puzzle jug" on the left was probably made in the
Netherlands in the second half of the 17th century. The Portuguese
plate bears the word "Amors," (love) and was sometimes used to carry rings
at a wedding ceremony.
