Base and body of a bowl


About this object

Fragment of a wide and short bowl with the whole ring base, parts of the body and the rim and one of its angular handles attached the one side of the rim. The bowl has been decorated in White Painted III type of white- reddish slip that is grainy and has bursted in the firing process. There is a thick brown circular band on the upper exterior body, a ligher brown thinner band along the interior rim, three in the lower part of the interior body and a dark brown circle at the centre of the interior base. The bowl has been pieced together by three large sherds and there are still parts of the body and the rim missing.
