Decoration Bowl with two handles, the rim has a black band around the top which goes both inside and outside the bowl. Below this on the inside, is a very thick black band that stops to leave an empty circle in the centre of the bowl. 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.
Inscriptions
Condition Intact. The rim suffers from several chips, one in particular quite large, opposite one of the handles. There is also evidence of wear on the glaze, as there is on the inside of the bowl. On the band inside the bowl can be found three deeper scratches, as well as the occasional small hole. The handles of the bowl also reveal small chips on their glaze, as well as small scratches. The band which leads down to and envelops the top of the foot, contains small scratches, and where it meets the foot are lots of small cracks in the glaze. There is also some yellowy/grey deposit, which we can also see on the base of the foot. The base is chipped slightly in places and there are small scratches in the glazed bands.
