Vase

Tall, narrow vase of square circumference which rises to a flat square lip surmounted by a peaked handle (providing a triangular profile). This profile is echoed in the small triangle which juts out from the side of the vase close to the mouth of the vessel, as well as the two diamond-shaped cartouches at approximately 2/3 of the vessel’s height. The vase carries a band of bronze glaze at the base, which is reiterated at the top of the vase, as well as carried on the mouth rim and handle. The diamond cartouches and the triangular form which juts from near the top of the vase are also bronze coloured. The rest of the vase consists of a blue glaze with rivulets of white slip trailed down the height of the vessel.
