Description

Round bottom, incurved rim. painted. decoration: angular interlocking scroll in negative design.

Bowl with a globular body, no neck/collar, rounded rim, no handles, and a rounded base. No molded/modeled additions. The vessel is painted with a band of geometric design around the rim in white, and black. There appears to be a burnished finish on the exterior and a smoothed finish on the interior. The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing atmosphere as the ceramic paste is orange in color. The catalogue number is written on the object in black ink on the bottom of the base. Black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "1209."
