25.6.2 Intact except for the edge of the rim which is missing on one side. The inside show small areas of general wear, as well as a small patch of what looks like yellow varnish near the broken rim. There is also some white deposit in the reserved disk in the centre, and on one of the handles. The black glaze on the handles has been rubbed away in patches, as has the decoration on the main zone. There is more white deposit on the main zone, some of which runs in circles, showing the gradient of the material. There are cracks on the glaze around the top of the foot, below which are some denser patches of white deposit. This deposit is also evident on the base of the foot and inside it. 2003.16.0094.jpg
26.7.15 Intact. All over shows small areas of wear, on the main zone there are small chips around the base of the handles. Above the stem, on the top of the foot, and inside the handles, there is a small amount of white deposit, including one large patch (which looks like it could have been used to fix a hole). 2003.29.0099.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
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
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.2007.2.32 Fragment; some chips and some pink-white plaster like substance, possibly accretions or previous restoration work 2007.10.0013.jpg
TEMP.2007.2.39 Fragment; some signs of previous repair - yellow plaster like substance and area that appears to have been glued previously 2007.10.0027.jpg
