3PotteryDisc Culture: Woodland
3 Pottery Gaming Disc - Georgia Finds
These round disc are made of grit tempered pottery that were possibly made from broken pots. However these has no curvature as a pot would and I feel they were made into gameing stones in the first place. These round disc are called gaming stones, possibly used in some ancient game. Or they may have been used smooth the insides of pottery, the roundness would fit the contour of the pot. I also found two of these laid over a Woodland burial's eyes. (It was a plow out and done with Auburn Archaeology Dept.'s permission with all data given to them back in 1981). The largest is 1-5/8" wide. The smallest is 1-1/4" wide and shows a design and I do believe this one was made from a broken pot that had this design all over it. Middle one is 1-1/2 and due to it's shape I feel it was made into a gaming stone from the getgo.

DKPot29 Culture: Mississippian
Georgia Pottery Vessel with Engraving - Late Late Lamar/Protohistoric Historic A.D. 1500
This beautiful pottery vessel was found in the 60's on a private farm in Gordon County on the banks of the Coosawattee River. It dates to the late part of the Dallas culture and up until the arrival of the Europeans. This design has been found on Creek and Cherokee vessels but is rare having the engraving on the inside of the vessels rim. Some collectors call these Casuella, or salt vessels.

The vessel has beautiful firing colors ranging from orange to white and is mica tempered. Most vessels are either shell tempered or grit tempered. Rarely do you come across a mica tempered vessel. It measures 6-1/4" wide and 2-5/8" tall (These are most always shallow bowls). The site is called the Poarch Farm Site located in Gordon County, Georgia.

Motief Bottle - 4 Embossed Designs - A.D. 1350
Ive had several vessel types with a weeping eye or tear drop symbol either etched or raised on the vessels surface. This one has the design embossed down into the surface. It also looks like maybe a spud or spatulate was impressed into the pot before firing. This had to have some creativity and knowledge of pottery making. It is solid, no restoration, and just a bit of ancient rim wear from use hundreds of years ago. It sits upright straight on a circular disc that thickened the base to add strength to the pot. It measures 6" wide and 4-1/4" tall

Mississippian Culture Bottle with Pedestal Base -A.D. 1350
This is one of the most attractive pedestal bottle that I have ran across. It sits upright on a flared base that has 3 decorative holes evenly spaced in the base. The bottle itself is just about as perfect as they come and it has a polish to it's surface. Large size at 9" tall and is 7" at it's widest point. There are some nice firing colors as well.

One out of MANY of this type, that has this base, the 3 holes, a good rim but this one has NO damage or restoration. X-Hodges, x-Jones collections
