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
34.2.1 Intact. There are four noticeable chips in the rim, as well as evidence of wear over the black surface. All over the Kylix are patches of wear and small scratches. The reserved disk in the centre has a lot of grey deposit on it, as does the inside of the rim. This deposit is also evident around the handles, and in small patches along the main zone. At the top of the stem, leading to the base, are lots of cracks and some flaking. There is a chip in the side of the foot, and the well in the base of the foot contains a lot of grey/white deposit. 2003.16.0010.jpg
38.4.3 Complete, appears intact. Paint extremely faded. Inside of mouth has over three small chips. There is one noticeable chip on the outside of the lip. The paint on the neck appears to have been worn away, because a pinkish clay is showing which does not appear to be a fading of the black decoration. There are at least two hairline cracks on the shoulder, with some of the clay worn away. The handles are in good condition with no noticeable chips, whereas the body has several chips and cracks. The base has a few small chips but is in very good condition. 2003.01.0004.jpg
38.4.6 Original lid is missing. However does have a fake/modern lid. Paint badly worn except for three good patches. Sides remain smooth and unchipped. Couple of cracks in surface and one inside. Deposits inside. 2005.90.0035.jpg
71.12.6 Large parts of bronze have broken away from the sides of the curved section. The most important aspect to note is the deterioration in colour to blue, green, black and brown. Only in a couple of areas does the true colour of the bronze show through. Deposits under the handle where it joins the body. Small hole to one side of the curved section. 2011.98.0027.jpg
73.6.4 Single fragment. The surface reveals few, tiny scratches, but does have a big flake missing on the palmette. There is also some deposit of a grey/brown colour. The inside gloss shows some scratches that run with the grain of the material, as well as some small flakes missing. 2002.97.0209.jpg
E.23.3 Intact and complete, including all figues and oars. The paint on all figures has degraded and does not merit individual description. Detail is missing from the bow and stern of the boat where the wood has degraded so much. There is also fissures in the wood of the deck of the boat. 2005.90.0019.jpg
E.65.11 Intact. Small area of polished metal showing through on rectangular extension but not reflective. Major discolouration and deterioration to the surface of both sides. Small surface scratches. Does not sit flat so the object must be slightly bent. 2008.08.0044.jpg
