    possible clay pottery fragment

    Hello all, I am new to this forum and only found it while trying to identify a piece of clay "something" in the same spot I found lots of arrowhead fragments and knapping stone so I think it is native american but would love to know for sure. I do not know anything about clay pottery so any info will help. The piece has a burgundy brownish paint like surface on one side and more of a glazed surface on the other side. I found it in west TN and from what I have read it is most likely chickasaw if it is even pottery. Thanks in advance for any help.Click image for larger version.

    If it's glazed it's not Indian. They never did that.(at least not where I live) Looks like a piece of field tile. Gary

    It is definitely clay and I'm 99.9% sure its man made, the "paint" on one side has a chip and it appears to have what looks like uneven brush marks. This was found on my family farm next to a creek a mile from any home sites and among many point pieces. Click image for larger version.

    I really don't know anything about pottery but I did read that there was glazing being used pretty far back made from natural materials but not sure about this area.

    I would post it in the Native American section of the Artifacts forum. It’s sort of near the bottom of the list of forums.
