Description

This thin-walled, white ware cup was thrown on a potter’s wheel. A number of incised lines were applied to the body. These lines served as both decoration, and as a guide for attaching the handle. Clear glaze on the interior produced the yellow color while copper oxide glaze applied to the exterior produced the green finish.

This piece was recovered from feature B55, Rudolph Christ’s Waster Dump #2. It is marked B55-5-1-25 and B55-B5-1-25 on its base in black ink.

Dimensions: 3.75” tall, 3” dia. rim, 2.625” dia. base
