25.8.4 Difficult to see main design due to erosion of paint but intact despite small chip in body. 2003.03.0093.jpg

50.5.1 Badly fired leaving traces of red, especialy around lower body. Intact despite dents and scratches to body and handle. Only traces of the white design remain. Major grey/white deposit build up on base and interior. Gloss is quite lustrous. 2006.20.0092.jpg
50.5.6 Intact. Paint appears extremely dull and matt despite being badly worn. Flaked off from most part of the decoration. Peach colour on small areas inside and corresponding exterior surface. A number of chips on the lower part of the base. The larger allows the clay inclusions (white stones) to show through. 2003.92.0190.jpg
