25.8.5 Complete but made up of seven seperate pices stuck back together. The handle has several chips, on the middle and lower tiers. The tip of the highest tier has also been chipped, and all over the handle, the gloss shows evidence of wear, with tiny cracks and scratches. The top of the lid shows a few small flakes and chips, mainly on the decoration, and eratically over the surface, there is brown/grey deposit. The inside of the lid is reserved but still shows patches of dirt and a small amount of grey/white deposit around the rim. 2002.97.0271.jpg
26.7.11 Intact. Beneath the handle, the top of the bell is not smooth, it appears to have been a hole, which has been stoppered with a ball of clay that remains connected and does not move. The lower black band on the main zone has been completely rubbed away on one side, revealing a darker brown clay. The entire surface shows small scratches, and some whitish deposit is evident, especially around the handle. The inside surface is rough, due to a lot of brown/grey deposit. 2002.97.0314.jpg
34.10.25 Complete but not intact. The figure has been broken in two and pieced back together. Other than that, the only thing wrong is the patches of brown/grey deposit on the head and shoulders, on the back, down some of the folds in the robe, on the vase and at the base, around the feet. 2002.97.0429.jpg
