About this object

A tall and wide bowl with a tall ring base, a circular rim and two small handles which have a slight tilt upwards and are attached to the rim of the bowl. The decoration is of the White Painted III type with a creamy white slip that has bursted in the firing process. The interior of the bowl is decorated in light brown circular bands, one along the rim, and upper body, three at the lower part and one small circle at the centre of its interior base. The bowl was pieced together by four different pieces and there are still parts of the body and its rim missing.
