Plate

The plate is complete, with the exception of a small missing edge. It is circular in shape, with a wavy rim and spikes. The rim is swollen on the front, the marli slopes inwards, while the wall is angular to the flat bottom. On the reverse, it rests on a flat base with a beveled edge. The reverse shows slight turning grooves. There are slight flaws on the inner base ; The decoration is molded. It is visible on the marli. It is similar to the Dot, Diaper and Basket design. The decoration is divided into two recessed compartments, with motifs in relief. The larger compartment, with its domed sides, is decorated with vertical barley grains arranged in a staggered pattern on a background of thin fillets that follow the contours of the compartment. The smaller compartments, with concave sides, feature two alternating wickerwork designs: one features a sort of basket with seven vertical uprights and horizontal waves, while the other has the same horizontal waves, and its center is free of uprights.
