Description
This relatively small domestic vessel would once have held foodstuffs in the home. The small handles would have been impractical for lifting the vessel should it have contained heavy goods. Its small opening would have kept the items held inside protected from the heat of the sun. The vessel is decorated in typical geometric style. Both black and red paint have been used to create the geometric decoration on the vessel, standing out against the pale cream of the Cypriot clay. - (SF.257)
