Black-glazed deep bowl. High, steep-walled bowl. Reddish-buff clay with a black, metallic glaze, rather thinly applied on the inside. The wall of the bowl is extremely thin and hard-fired. 3 shell feet from which some glaze has worn off are applied over a broad groove which surrounds two small grooves on the bottom center. The bowl was broken at some point and repaired in modern times. The whole is an imitation of metal-work.
