26.4.2 Complete but stuck back together from eight(?) seperate pieces. The glaze both inside and out is very worn, and the rim shows chipping and flaking. The inside of the pot is not completely smooth and there is a grey/white deposit, especially around the inner rim. Both of the handles have a lot of the same grey/white deposit on them, as well as big worn patches on the glaze. There is more deposit on the outside, especially around the foot. The surface outside is also in fairly bad condition, the surface revealing lots of small scratches and chips. The top of the foot has two significant chips in it but other than that it is in good condition, showing only small cracks running through the glaze in the well on the underneath of the foot. 2002.97.0264.jpg
29.11.7 Intact. There is one chip on the edge of the rim, as well as a bit of wear. There is evidence of greyish/white deposit most noticeably around the rim and below one of the handles. Main zone in fairly good condition, with the usual evidence of wear and small scratches all over the surface. A large area of the the firing is red instead of black. There is a small whole in the stem of the foot, and some whitish/grey deposit around the edge of the foot and inside the base. 2002.97.0200.jpg
34.10.17 Complete. The white slip has worn away in places, and there is a smooth grey deposit evident in patches. Also, the munsell colour shows through. The features of the face are still fairly clear, but the eyes seem worn. The surface all over feels smooth, but the base of the neck is slightly uneven and a bit chipped. 2002.97.0389.jpg
34.8.13 Complete. The surface is fairly uneven, and there is flaking at the top of the thighs. There is a dark deposit around the base of the feet. 2004.95.0058.jpg
47.10.2 Incomplete. One handle and part of side missing. Surface of body in fairly good condition, showing only very small chips and small amount of greyish deposit underneath the handles. Inside the remaining handle is small amount of white deposit. The handle itself is slightly bumpy and chipped on the edges. 2002.97.0469.jpg
50.5.3 Mouth and upper part of neck modern and intact handle. Most of the black has faded to a light brown color. The neck and mouth has been rebuilt by modern material. The surface appears in fairly good condition, except for some deep scratches around the neck. Left swan scratched face, right swan intact face. There are other small scratches on the surface and bit of flaking and chipping, especially around the edge of the foot. 2007.01.0012.jpg
60.8.2 Complete and intact, but in fairly bad condition. It has been badly fired, which has left the glaze patchy, especially on the back of the body. Fired to reddish brown. Around the rim of the mouth, the glaze has been worn and scratched away to reveal the reserved clay, as it has around the handles. The decoration on the main zone is still fairly visible, but is worn in patches and flaking around the edges. At many parts, clay flaked off. Around the top of the foot is greyish white deposit, also evident around the handles. There is a large chip in the foot. White has faded. 2002.97.0709.jpg
73.9.23 The surface of the fragment appears to be in fairly good condition, except for a few small areas of grey deposit. The back of the fragment varies in colour, moving from red to black and then grey. The surface however is again in fairly good condition with no real evidence of wear except for a few small scratches. 2002.97.0191.jpg
73.9.8 Two fragments. (a)The glaze on the rim and the inside of the fragment shows a few small scratches. On the rim and the outside of the fragment there are a few small areas of milky/white deposit. The black blob reveals an area which may have been the base of a handle. The colour of the clay inside here, is a more pink colour. Like the first fragment, fragment (b) shows evidence of small scratches on the glaze, both inside and out, but seems in fairly good condition, with no evidence of deposit. 2002.97.0185.jpg
