About this object

A deep reddish clay bowl with a stemmed foot, a flared rim and two horizontal handles. The bowl is decorated in White Painted III, the white slip is creamy but has been lost in certain areas exposing the red clay. A thin brown band runs along the rim and a thicker one at the lower part of the body, just above the foot. The main decoration on the body of the bowl and on both sides are in three narrow panels. The central panel has a design of three brown vertical lozenges filled with a cross hatched pattern. The central lozenge pattern has three vertical lines on its side. The other two narrow panels are closer to the handles and have decoration of thin, vertical brown lines with a pointed arrow line in the middle. The base of the foot is outlined in a brown circle. The handles are painted in brown and their decoration is shadowed on the body of the bowl. The interior of the bowl is also decorated in brown concentric circles along the rim and at the lower part of the body. The bowl has been joined together by different sherds but is in a good condition.
