Cypriot White Painted bowl with handles: Cypro-Geometric (1050-750 BC)

White Painted bowl with handles

A wheelmade pottery bowl with two handles, a creamy white slip painted with dark-grey, wide bands , including a circle on the inside bottom. Possibly a later variant of the proto-Geometric footed bowls which are almost identical, except for the foot missing here and replaced with a flat disc base.

Size: 5.6 x 12.5cm
