Comentarios:
Undecorated pearlware vessels were considerably less common than decorated varieties, and many archaeologically-recovered sherds without decoration were undoubtedly fragments from decorated wares. The paste of pearlware produced after 1810 was heavier and whiter than earlier examples, and had a harder lead glaze, varying in color from almost clear to deeply bluish tinted.
