Description
Cup-shaped bowl with a single, high-swung strap handle, flaring at each side just above the join at rim. The body is sharply carinated to form the shallow floor of the cup. The offset foot is a ring base with gently concave underside. Burnished black all over, the only decoration being a line of incised rouletting along the projection of the carination on the exterior, and two incised lines around the rim exterior.
