About this object

A bowl with a vertical double handle on its side and a conical foot. The decoration is of the White Painted III type of thick brown wavy bands running from the handle along the main body of the bowl. The rim and the foot are painted in dark brown and so is the handle with a dark paint curve extending onto the body as if it is reflecting the movement of the painter's brush. The interior of the bowl is also decorated in thin circular bands along the rim and the lower part while the centre is painted in a thick brown circle. The decoration is minimal, the dark brown creates a good contrast with the white milky coat of the bowl. One side of the bowl has lost its white coat, leaving exposed a very red clay.
