Object was accepted as part of former number S1996.121a-c: Pedestal-footed bowl with interior stand, small cup, and conical lid, originally unrelated but formerly assembled as pastiche.
Wheel-thrown on fast wheel, possibly as single piece with solid pedestal foot, or else with pedestal foot attached to separately-made flat-bottomed bowl. String-cut mark on base, cut from wheel revolving counter-clockwise, abraded, with deep gouge (later break?). Knob of clay attached to center of bottom and thrown as interior stand, on thick stem supporting disk (which broke and was chipped and ground down to the diameter of the bowl base in the process of preparing the pastiche). Signs of torqueing stress on vessel walls from throwing clay too thin. Deep hemispherical bowl with short rim everted at right angle, pinched by hand into fluting (also while the wheel was revolving counter-clockwise).
Clay: stoneware, medium brown where exposed, light golden-brown where abraded.
Decoration: beveled lower edge, three levels cut into pedestal base tapering inward. Undercut flange suggesting visual base of vessel proper. On upper wall below rim, two combed horizontal bands (made with six-toothed combing tool), framing band into which same tool was used to incise row of scalloped combing, tightly compressed arcs with points facing downward and overlapping lower straight band of combing, not quite meeting at end and corrected with one additional arc. On upper surface of fluted rim, cross-hatching created by combing around rim, then crossing with short radiating lines (or some sort of rouletting?)
Glaze: iron glaze, translucent amber brown on exterior, opaque darker brown on interior. Glaze originally reached to pedestal foot (by dipping inverted vessel into vat of glaze?), messily wiped off lower vessel. Water or something else in interior of vessel has discolored the glaze surface.
