IRISH ANTIQUITY

Object Name

Pot : food vessel : vase : bipartite

Description

Pot : food vessel : vase : bipartite Decorated with incised ornament. The mouth of the pot was distorted before firing - it is now a very irregular oval measuring about 17.5 by 11cm. Rim bevelled inwardly and decorated with a herring-bone pattern of incised lines. Externally the rim is decorated with small square-like jabs. These are repeated with pressure under the rim. Rows of deeply incised lines below this form a herring-bone pattern. This arrangement is interrupted by the application of bosses at 5cm intervals. Only one boss now remains; the others have fallen off. The ware has a smooth surface, approaching a shine in places. Large grits appear, but the fabric is compact. The general colour is pink.
