Copper alloy bowl with ring handle from Esna tomb E'05 252. 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 tomb E'05 252 but its whereabouts are unrecorded.
