Currently not on display


Stemmed bowl with blue painted decoration from house V.35.6 in the North Suburb at Tell el Amarna (find no. 29/273). Round-sided wheel-made bowl that is missing the footed goblet that was once on the base. Restored from several fragments. Decoration imitates the form of the white lotus. It is cream coated on the outside only, and over this are applied floral and linear motifs in blue, red and black. On the upper part of the vessel these consist of bands and lines of blue, red and black, a row of red dots and thin tapering blue lily petals.
