Condition Consists of 7 fragments and 6 more fragents yet to be reconstructed. A small fragment seems to have been missing when most of the cup was put back together, therefore somebody has used plaster to refill the small piece. One of the side handles broken off and most of the side of the cup is incomplete. Bad condition. Black glaze worn. Small soil deposits situated around cup.
