47.2.21 Three careless thick vertical bands of white slip, which start just below the join of the knob and the bell, and slip onto the underside of the bell; otherwise reserved. Striations on the inside and outside of the bell indicate that it was formed on a wheel, although the knob and striking ball were probably not. 2010.99.0080.jpg
50.5.2 The interior and rim are black, except for two red bands just inside the rim. The underside of the rim is decorated with a leaf-like band of design. The spaces between the attachment points of the handles are reserved. Palmettes occupy the spaces beneath each handle. On either side the figural scene is bordered right and left with tendrils spouting two quarter palmettes from volutes. Side A: A nude youth, standing profile to the right, with his left leg stepping on a rock, holds a stemmed plate in his upraised right hand (supported by his left hand). He faces a satyr, standing in 3/4-view to the left, who holds a bell in his right hand and a thrysos in his left; a himation is draped over his left shoulder and arm. Side B: Two standing, draped youths with walking sticks face each other. A reserved band, a reserved line, and a band of waves appear below the figural zones. The lower part of the body and base are black. Added white and yellow are used for details on both sides. 2004.04.0004.jpg
