Hemispherical bowl with very low ring foot. The sharply rounded rim turns inward very slightly. The rounded walls curve down to just outside the very minimal base, which is surrounded by a very narrow flat plain. There is a single offset within base on underuse. Double dipping steak is offset from center. Because of wear of the slip, turning bands of are visible on the exterior, though likely not originally so visible.
Fabric, firing, and surface description
Although affected by marine exposure, the identifying aspect of a very fine light fabric and dark red slip remain clear on this piece.
Preservation comment
Six joining sherds preserve approximately 1/4 of rim in two sections, profile, and all of base. The slip and fabric are worn and lightened in color due to marine exposure.
