The handles begin about an inch below the rim on the outside of the bowl, but curve up and out to finish roughly on level with the rim. They are painted with black glaze only on the underside. Above the base of the handles there is a subtle ridge, below which there are three lines of pattern, which look like petals. Below these, there is a thin black band, a small space, and then a thick black band which goes down to the ridge of the foot. The foot itself appears to consist of two flattish disks, the lower with a black band round it. On the bottom of the foot, there is another black band part way in, and then a smaller one with a black dot in the middle. 2002.97.0223.jpg
TEMP.2002.9.1 Squat clay bowl with simple motif and two handles. Low foot painted with a black line. The bottom of the bowl is slightly angled (although irregular). The body (slightly lopsided) curves toward a carination where there is a slightly wavy horizontal band. Two handles, one either side and roughly with a line of black gloss. The rim flares slightly and is decorated with a line above a simple zig zag (which is of poor quality). The interior is almost plain with a ring painted at the base.

Near the top of this black section is a set of white lines with white dots set in between them at regular intervals. Under this pattern is another thin white line. Under this is on part of a triangle pattern consising of a white outlined triangle with a white line forming a second triangle within the first and a red dot at the center of the triangle.
TEMP.2003.7.7 Fragment from the central part of a bowl. Interior brown, with three pairs of white lines beginning about 1.5 from the top, 3.0 from the top, and 4.0 from the top.
