About this object

Bowl with flat base and vertical sides reconstructed from plaster using one original pottery sherd. Buff colour with dark brown decoration consisting of stripes and hatch work patterning, typical of the late Tell Halaf style. The excavator noted the four sherds were found in trench Z (period III) at Sakje Geuzi. The single sherd was restored as a complete bowl for display within the "Aegean & Hittite Gallery" between 1931 and 1941. The gallery was destroyed during the wartime bombing of Liverpool in May 1941.
