Fabric_description
Munsell_color 5YR 5/4
Decoration Small piece of side of pot including rim and part of handle. It seems handle would have been long and thin according to where the other part has been detached. Interior surface is black. One side of handle is black, whilst the other side is reserved. The exterior surface of the body is reserved also. The rim curves around reasonably sharply and the size and thickness of the handle suggests quite a small cup.
Inscriptions
Condition On the reserved side of the handle are some deposits as there are on one part of exposed clay at fracture. Lustre remains on black areas.
