Bowl

56.217.12
A shallow bowl with a conical foot, a vertical handle and a slightly flared rim. The decoration is of the White Painted II type with thin brown wavy lines running from the handle along the upper body of the bowl. The foot and the rim are painted in dark brown and so is the handle where the paint is extending in a curve underneath the handle. The interior of the bowl has thin circular bands along the rim, the lower part of the body and its centre is painted in a thick brown circle. The decoration is minimal, the white coat of the bowl contrasting well with the wavy brown lines. The clay is red and porous and the white coat has fallen off in different parts of the bowl, part of the rim is chipped.
