14.9.109 Part of the body and the rim mended from a rejoining fragment. Part of one handle and two parts of rim missing. Lustre remains. White deposits around the stem. Chips to the rim. Parts of the gloss scratched off the remaining handle. The gloss on the interior is not lustrous. On the larger part of the interior thinly applied and fired red. More shiny on the stem and the underside of the foot. Noted in pencil: 'BM' and '26' 2003.97.0495.jpg
14.9.38 Small areas of paint have flaked away from the surface allowing reserved clay to show through. Larger flake from rim. Streaky red inside. Free from deposits. 2003.01.0093.jpg
2008.7.196 Larger fragment broken on five sides has had a smaller fragment broken on four sides glued to it previously
2008.7.42 Exterior: overpaint has small patches scratched/chipped off; Interior: overpaint has larger areas chipped off
22.3.26 Part of rim (about 1/4) is missing. Several very small chips and scratched areas can be found on the top surface of the plate, as well as one larger part that is gouged out. Also very small chips are visible on the underside of the plate and a patch near the missing rim is unevenly fired (red instead of black). 2003.97.0922.jpg
29.5.2 The rim next to one handle has a small area of sandy deposit and shows where the glaze has been slightly rubbed away. On the rim near the other handle is a larger amount of a more whitish deposit, which is also on the inside of the pot. The glaze on the handles is marred by large amounts of greyish/green deposit, which also covers a large amount of the glaze lower down the body and on the base of the foot. On the main zone on side A, there is a whiter deposit. On side B, at the foot of Pegasus, there is a deep scratch. In the base of the foot, there is a crack down one side of the well. 2003.16.0008.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
73.9.2 Fragment. Handle covered in scratches and patches of wear, especially on left arm. At the bottom of the left arm of handle is a small chip with a white patch in the middle. Rim, and both inside and outside of fragment show more small scratches. Larger scratch diagonally down left, through black band directly beneath the ivy leaf. 2002.97.0212.jpg
E.23.10 The actual pallete is covered with many small scratches, which, combined with the reside of pigments, have left it a light grey colour. There are chips missing from two corners of the base, one larger than the other, with two other chips in diagonal corners of the trapazoid. 2002.98.0109.jpg
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.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.62.51 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.63.29 Intact. Several large chips on the lip, large amounts of light deposit, more prominant on base. Elongated verticle hole at widest point of body. Two smaller but shallower holes to the right of the larger. Blackened from use. 2002.98.0041.jpg
E.65.15 Intact if fragmentary, no colour is lost although the surface is rough in some areas suggesting a loss in glaze, one end displays characteristics of having been snapped of a larger object. 2002.98.0969.jpg
REDMG:1951.137.1 Two small chips on the outside of lid, and a larger chip on flange; white and reddish-brown deposits on the underside; glaze cracking above the bird. 2004.73.0004.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
