Pot Stand


Currently not on display


Conical stand to support a pot or bowl, shaped like an inverted cone with four fenestrations and large incised potmark. Red slip applied to outside and within the inside of the narrower opening. Compare with a FIP conical stand from Dendera in Anna Wodzinska (2009) p. 161. Marked in pencil '317' - seems likely that this is from Esna, rather than Beni Hasan or Abydos.
