Borderware

Borderware is the collective term used to describe the pottery made and fired at kilns situated on the Hampshire - Surrey border from the post-medieval period right up to the late 19th or early 20th century.

3 broken pots

(Figure 1 shows Redware bowls from Hill House Pottery, Tower Hill, Cove).

Most of the Hampshire potteries were in Farnborough and Cove and in the period 1550 to 1700 they were the principal suppliers of domestic wares to the London market. Pottery sherds have also been found at excavations of early settler sites in Virginia, USA.

Locally, there is a surprising lack of awareness of this historically important activity and NEHHAS has set aside part of the collection for display purposes. The items included are shown on the lists attached with the site name, bag reference and brief description. A display of all or part of this assemblage may be provided by prior appointment for a small donation to the society.
