At an excavation at Joure (Friesland) during the summer of 1999, three pits with waste from a pottery were found. Because of the presence of salt-glazed stoneware and industrial earthenware within the pits, the pits could be dated to 1760–1780. Pieces of earthenware from the three pits fitted together, so all pits must have been filled at the same time. The pits contained typical Frysian pottery with for example tulip decoration. 18th/19th century Frisian pottery is found throughout the Netherlands. Only in the Gouda area and near the German border is it poorly represented.
