Shape: Fragment of the base and wall of a green-glazed stoneware bowl. The footring is bevelled and unglazed on the outside and bottom. The inside of the glazed footring has a conical protrusion which extends approximately 0.1 cm below the base of the bowl. Outside diameter of the footring is 4.9 cm. Footring height is approximately 1.0 cm. Thickness of the bowl wall varies from 0.5 cm near the base to 0.2 cm at the highest remaining portion of the wall.
Clay: Very fine, white, porcelaneous stoneware with a few dark inclusions and a modest number of small air pockets.
Glaze: The outside of the bowl is covered with a rich green glaze, while the inside is coated with a clear glaze which shades to a delicate seawater green where it is thicker. Both glazes are uncrackled and of high quality. The green glaze on the outside shows a few spots where small particles of iron fired very dark and "bled" in the direction of the glaze flow (i.e., toward the foot of the bowl). The inside of the footring is glazed with the same green glaze as the outside of the bowl, while the unglazed outside is covered with a dark chocolate slip. The base of the footring is completely unglazed.
Decoration: Impressed underglaze grooves radiate upward from the foot of the bowl toward the mouth. The green glaze is much thicker in the depressions formed by these grooves, creating the impression of pronounced fluting.
