Object Name Sherd
Description One sherd of black on white type pottery.
The body of the sherd is medium to dark grey in color and the designs are in black glaze. Small vertical black lines decorate the edge of the rim.
The exterior of the sherd is decorated with what can best be described as a triangular checkerboard pattern alternating between the black glaze and the dark grey surface. The triangles appear to meet at a central point underneath a lump of beeswax that is adhered to the sherd.
The interior of the sherd has the medium grey color. A single black line parallels the rim of the sherd and a small bird figure is standing on that line. Two veritcal black lines, one thick and one thin complete the design.
