Description

Hollow form, of coiled and high-fired earthenware, pierced by a hole, the exterior coated in white slip (?), and painted in black; the interior glazed black.

Earthenware, hand formed, of rounded asymmetrical bulging shape, pierced by an almost square hole, the exterior coated in patchy white slip and painted in matt black; the interior glazed black. On the curved side there is a black oval, just touching a circular outline above it, in which is an arch-cjshaped black area with the hole cut into its left bottom corner. A short vertical line rises upwards on the right side of the arch, and on the left side, a longer vertical line on the left of which is an arch-shaped outline.
