Fabric_description
Munsell_color 10YR 7/4
Decoration Black interior and handle; beneath each handle a palmette, flanked by tendrils; on each side a wave band, to right, above a woman's head, profile to left, surrounded by tendrils. Banded decoration below is comprised of a reserved band just below the figural scene, a pair of red bands above the foot, a red band on the upper surface of the foot, and reserved area at the centre of the underside. The common use of red stain to effect a red (ruddled) surface on reserved areas is highlighted in this example by the almost complete loss of black glaze towards the foot, where the ruddled intervening bands strongly contrast with the buff/reserved (formerly black glazed) areas.
Inscriptions
Condition Missing one handle; join with body shows signs of a previous restoration. Surface dulled, especially on interior; some loss of glaze, especially around the foot, where only the ruddled patches remain; cracked just above foot.
