Copper alloy bowl with ring handle from Esna grave number 252 E'05. The ring of hammered wire hangs through a hole riveted to the rim of the bowl. The inner and outer surface is plain. Downe's (1974) notes that the bowl had recently been cleaned. The excavation archive images show that the bowl contained organic material that appears to be textile - was it once wrapped in textile? Downe's also notes that the field records record a similar smaller bowl also from grave 252 E'05 but its whereabouts are unrecorded. Compare with a similar bowl in the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology, no. UC8539. On 20 December 1976 a photograph of the object was sent to Dr. H. Müller-Karpe of the Institut für Vorgeschichte der Universität, Frankfurt (may have been published).
