E.23.38 Intact, it is clear from the top and bottom part of the artefact that it has been removed from a larger object, since they appear to be thinner than the rest of the object and therefore look like 'connectors' of some kind. There appears to be very little degradation of the wood. There are some remnants of a white pigment on the lower half. 2002.98.0077.jpg
E.23.43.2 Intact and copmplete, there are several impurities in the glaze, most notably a long line of black substance that appears to be stuck to the bead as it very raised from the surface.
E.23.44 Intact and complete. The blue glaze is quite worn in some areas, most notably at the top of the crown where it has toally worn away and reveals the original terracotta material. This is slightly true also around the ears. 2002.98.0994.jpg
E.23.47.1 Most of the beads have lost their original sheen and several of them have a brown deposit on them. Since there are very few details on any of the beads/amulets it is difficult to say if any have been lost. Several of the objects have lost some of their original colour but all remain intact and complete. 2002.98.0232.jpg
E.23.49.4 Intact although if there was a handle it is now gone. There appears to be some deposit on the non flat side. 2002.98.0141.jpg

E.62.10 Intact if fragmentary, the wood is somewhat degraded and there are three large chips, two at the top and one running along the side of the main body. It is clear from the state of the state of the foot that it has been snapped off a larger object. 2002.98.0972.jpg
E.62.39 Intact, but a large chip is missing from the lip, approximately one quarter missing. There is a crack going from one side to the other, starting and terminating at the shoulder, it goes around the base. Very little deposit. 2002.98.0011.jpg
E.62.42 Single fragment intact and well preserved although it is unclear how much of the original object is preserved.
E.62.51 Intact. On the underside the wood is apparently water damaged and there is some rotting at the end of the cobra where it presumably once joined to the larger object (crown). There is a large crack on the underside near the very top head of the cobra. 2008.08.0279.jpg
E.63.13C Single fragment. The blue glaze is well preserved, and there is very little visible damage to the surface although it is quite rough to the touch. 2002.98.0954.jpg

E.63.6 Intact and complete. The blue glaze is largely intact although where it has worn away the blue colour has also gone and there is only a light brown rough surface remaining. 2007.99.0065.jpg

E.65.14 Intact but a fragment, the glaze is gone as has much of the colour, there is an obvious crack near the foot of the fragment and it is clear from both ends of the fragment it has been snapped off. 2002.98.0967.jpg
E.65.17 Intact and complete, There is very little detail remaining, so it may have been painted on. The glaze has rubbed off and there is a white deposit on the amulet on both sides. 2002.98.0948.jpg
E.65.6 Intact, although clearly not complete even though it is unclear what it once belonged to. There is however little degridation of the wood. 2002.98.0076.jpg
L.2011.1.13 Fragment. The lid is chipped and has sediment in it. 2011.97.0183.jpg
REDMG:1951.157.1 The red surfaces have eroded. Some black glaze has worn off at the back of the handle, where it is also slightly pitted; the underside bears some tan deposits.
REDMG:1953.25.23 Mouth missing. The surface has flaked away on much of the object, and it is pitted at the back; base and top of foot are chipped. 2005.99.0076.jpg

REDMG:1953.25.83 Intact if fragmentary. The facial features, especially the nose and right ear, have worn down quite considerably although it is still clear what they are meant to be. The line of breakage is straight, falling from the right ear to the middle of the left side of the neck. 2003.93.0197.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.98 Fragment broken off from a larger item. There is a large amount of white pigment remaining on the suface; this suggests that it was originally white in colour. The nose is quite short, perhaps because it has been worn down. 2003.93.0167.jpg
REDMG:1964.1159.1 Horse is broken in several places. Difficult to tell if tail has been broken or whether it ever existed. One front and one back leg missing. Head of horse also absent. Painted bands badly worn. White deposits on back of horse. 2003.93.0138.jpg

TEMP.2002.7.1 Intact. The rim suffers from several chips, one in particular quite large, opposite one of the handles. There is also evidence of wear on the glaze, as there is on the inside of the bowl. On the band inside the bowl can be found three deeper scratches, as well as the occasional small hole. The handles of the bowl also reveal small chips on their glaze, as well as small scratches. The band which leads down to and envelops the top of the foot, contains small scratches, and where it meets the foot are lots of small cracks in the glaze. There is also some yellowy/grey deposit, which we can also see on the base of the foot. The base is chipped slightly in places and there are small scratches in the glazed bands. 2002.97.0223.jpg
TEMP.2002.9.16 Nose is missing (as it probably is from the original). Hair is uneven as parts of the cast are missing from one side. Cast is placed on a black stand, also made of plaster.
TEMP.2003.6.10 Three fragments of the same vessel's base. It appears that the body has mostly been scraped off around the joining point at the upper parts of the fragments, apart from a bit on b and two bits on c. a) There are adhesives on the interior and few spots have been chipped off. There are three tiny spots on the interior and a spot on the central part of the base, where there are also three cracks. b) Two tiny bits have been chipped off from the interior and a spot looks flaked off from the inner side surface of the foot. There are also traces of adhesives. c) Four very small parts have been chipped off from the interior. There are also traces of adhesives, especially on the interior, as well as two cracks on the central part of the base. 2006.20.0670.jpg
TEMP.2003.6.3 Two fragments probably from the same vessel. (a) Many spots have been pitted off and there are remains of adhesives after some form of restoration. (b) A thick layer of white plaster (after some form of restoration) has been peeled off from some areas and it is cracked, deposits, remains of adhesives and accumulation of residue, especially on the interior.
TEMP.2003.6.6 a) Should be rejoined to b. It consists of part of the rim, one handle (the other one is missing) and body of the vessel. Small bits have been pitted off, as well as parts of the colour on some areas. The glaze also seems to be scraped off, apart from the surfaces decorated with palmettes. There are traces of white plaster (on the exterior), especially at the upper part of the handle's springs. b) Should be rejoined to a and c. Part of the rim and body of the vessel. The area above the decoration on the body seems scraped off. c) Should be rejoined to b. It consists of part of the rim, one of the springs of the other handle (that is missing) and part of the vessel's body. White plaster is apparent on most of the external surface. Traces of adhesives? exist on the internal surface of the rim d) Part of the rim and body of the vessel. Adhesives on the rim (interior and exterior). e) Part of the vessel's lower body. Tiny bits have been pitted off from both sides and colour has fadded away on some areas. f) Part of the vessel's resting surface. The foot is missing and there are adhesives and white plaster on the joining point of the foot with the base. 2006.20.0464.jpg
TEMP.2003.6.8 Seven fragments that belong to the same vessel. There is white plaster on both sides of each fragment. b) Adhesives on the exterior. The black gloss has been peeled off at some areas. e) Adhesives, especially on the external left side of the fragment. f) Small bits have been pitted off, and a shallow scratch on the lowest part of the body and a cracking on the central part of the resting surface. g) Looks like it has been flaked off from the vessel.
TEMP.2003.7.64 Scratches on rim. Black gloss and white paint very worn. Chipped patch where handle would have been, has glue on it. Perhaps the handle was once stuck back on and has been broken off again. Underside of fragment covered in white deposits. 2006.20.0008.jpg
TEMP.2007.2.33 Fragment of a rim; Has pink plaster attached to it with decoration on, suggesting previous restoration work 2007.10.0015.jpg
