27.4.12 Complete; repaired from seven pieces. The rim is uneven, and contains two small but definite chips. All over the surface are small scratches and patches of wear. The pattern on the rim contains few subtle patches of red, the same colour as patches on the handles. Patterns in the centre of the bowl appear to have rubbed away in patches. Underneath, the patterns remain more prominant, but again small patches of wear are evident, especially around the rim. Inside the foot are greyish white deposits, that are also found underneath the rim in small patches near the handles. 2003.19.0002.jpg
48.4.1 Complete, but stuck back together from six seperate pieces. The rim shows one definite chip, and several small ones. The leaves on top of the rim have worn away in patches. The main zone also shows patches of wear, the surface revealing different colours, some paler clay, and some more orange. A white deposit is evident on the thick black band above the foot as well as some small scratches. The thin black band around the rim of the foot has mostly worn away. Inside, the black has scratches and flaked away to reveal the reserved clay. There is also more white deposit on the inside walls of the pot. 2002.97.0347.jpg
