Description:   Mended from three fragments; two pieces missing from rim and wall. The dish is flat with low vertical sides and a small ring base. The outside, save the unpainted underside of the base, is covered with green glaze over a white slip, the glaze irregular in color and rough in texture. The inside is decorated with conventional patterns in a dark greenish-blue against a cream glaze background. Yellowish-brown blobs, rougher in texture, have been added over the glaze, into which they have run somewhat in the firing. The green of the exterior is continued over the top of the rim, and has run a little into the inside.
Coarse light red clay.
