The ship’s iron stove rests on the edge of a lead sheet placed underneath to protect the wooden ship from catching on fire.   It is rare to find a stove on a shipwreck in such good condition.  This one appears to be tipped over on its back.  The broken ceramic jugs near the stove were most likely used for food or water storage.  Their style is indicative of a type made in the Yucatan.
