One large sherd preserves entire rim and most of neck, roughly one third of upper body and shoulder, and one entire handle and upper 15% of the other. Slight, sparse abrasion, scratching and chipping but otherwise surface in good condition; mostly clean breaks; sparse, thin patches of encrustation and orange discoloration: iron oxide?
