Paste/Temper: The clay is untempered. Texture is smooth, with a distinct clayey feel. Exteriors are usually buff to tan, with an occasional cream-colored sherd. Since the interiors show the same colors as the exteriors, the bowls were fired standing up-right in an oxidizing atmosphere.
Surface Treatment: Camden Ware is uniformly smooth on both the exterior and the interior. A few sherds show faint indications of being paddled with a cord-wrapped paddle, following which, the surfaces were smoothed over.
Vessel Form: Camden vessels are dominantly shallow open bowls or simple cups, possibly copied from contemporary English vessels
Vessel Diameter: The medium size bowls are from 17 30 cm in diameter.
Vessel Height: Unknown
Rim Form: Most rims are straight or slightly everted. None are inverted. Lips are either square or rounded
Base Form: The base is flat, but with no ‘foot ring.’
Vessel Wall Thickness: Thickness ranges from 8 mm at the base to 4 mm near the rim.
