|Vessel Form||Form unspecified|
|Object Type (notes)||Two Bucchero Rim Fragments|
|Condition||Two fragments of a wide, horizontal rim which do not join but appear to belong to the same vessel by virtue of their similar decoration. Fragment A preserves a portion of the vertical edge of the rim and is broken irregularly on the other three sides. The underside shows that the fragment is broken where rim attaches to the bowl. Fragment B is apparently broken on all sides, or possibly preserves a portion of a curving edge now badly worn and broken off where the rim would join the bowl.|
|Description||Two fragments of a wide, horizontal rim with a flat, decorated upper surface. This is probably part of a small circular bowl framed with at least one square corner, as shown by the preserved vertical edge of Fragment A which is decorated in a wave pattern, and possibly curved at the opposite corner as shown by Fragment B. The two fragments do not join but seem to be part of the same vessel as revealed by their decoration. Towards the inside the top surface of both fragments shows a decorative band containing a continuous guilloche, while towards the edge is a crudely incised wave pattern consisting of connecting or overlapping half-circles or half-ovals. In addition, Fragment A has a single, stamped, eight-petal rosette near the edge of the rim.|
