58.2.4 Wide rim with bevelled lip. Long wide neck leading to a short and rounded body, base protrudes from body but has been damaged (during firing process ?). The handle attaches to the top of the body and then again at the join of the rim and the neck. There is a fork shaped spur which follows the curve of the handle and rim and then continues above the main body of the jug. 2003.92.0082.jpg
59.6.3 Single but ornate handle that has pointed oval at bottom, two moulded lines towards top and a piece that curves up separate to the main handle in a 'cobra-like' strike pose.

REDMG:1953.25.16 Trefoil mouth at the back of which is attached a hook-shaped round handle that begins above the height of the mouth and turns back to join the shoulder, with a slight spur; short neck curving into a baggy body in a continuous curve; short ring foot with narrow, rounded resting surface, diagonal inside wall, and pointed underside. Handle attachment is indicative of the Dotted Spray Group 2005.99.0090.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.54 Wide-mouthed mug. Rounded outturned rim, narrowing at the neck and broadening to a baggy body, in a continuous curve down to the thick torus ring foot, with a thin resting surface, diagonal element, and offset underside; a vertical loop ribbon handle is tucked in just below the rim where it adjoins the upper half of the body.
REDMG:1958.117.1 Rounded, slightly incurving rim, which which rise (at slight angles) two high swung strap handles, rejoined at the bottom of the bowl in a continuous curve with the bottom of the bowl; between the handles, the bottom of the bowl is set off from the side walls. A flaring, broad ring foot is convex on the interior; the underside of the bowl is slightly convex. On the interior, the bottom of the bowl is offset from the side walls at a sharp carination. 2004.99.0885.jpg
REDMG:1964.1663 Rounded, slightly raised rim; two pinched round horizontal handles, round in section, rise at a diagonal from the sloping shoulders which curve gently down to a small raised base, concave on the underside. 2003.93.0363.jpg
