Candlestick base

This candlestick base is from the site of a post-Medieval kiln at Throsk in Stirlingshire. It dates from between 1630 and 1700 and would have been discarded as it was not formed properly.

Base of candlestick from a post-medieval kiln at Throsk, Stirlingshire

The Throsk earthenware was not of high quality but it was in demand throughout Scotland. A boatload of Throsk jugs was found capsized in the Forth near Gargunnock proving that pottery was shipped out from the area.
