Blue glazed bowl with black concentric rings of stylised plants (?) in black inside and out. Rim is chipped in several places. Has previously been considered a forgery because the design is a little irregular; however, the manufacture technique seems consistent with ancient Egyptian faience. Displayed in 1976 and recorded as a forgery in January 1982 (personal communication between Mrs Margaret Warhurst and Dr Angela Milward). Wellcome Historical Medical Museum accession no. 127384: BOWL. Pottery, bright turquoise glaze, painted in dark blue conventional design. (Rim chipped). 2" X 5 7/8". Ancient Egyptian. Purchased at Stevens's Auction House 11-12 November 1930 Lot 754.
