Primary Description: 
Fragment of Bowl. Transparent pale greenish yellow, with many bubbles; decorated in yellowish brown. Blown; stained. Fragment of bowl. Wall (Th. 0.2 cm) curves down and in at bottom and merges with base, which is convex, except for small, very slightly concave area at center; two adjacent scars appear to represent two pontil marks. Decorated with concentric circle (W. 0.4 cm, D. [external] about 9 cm) containing two superimposed equilateral triangles, which together form central hexagon with small equilateral triangles projecting from its sides; outer point of each triangle is joined to its neighbors by arcs, so that perimeter is shaped like rosette with six petals; hexagon and each area enclosed by arcs have single open circles; each small triangle has solid dot; between outer point of each small triangle and circular border, one small V-shaped element with point toward center.
