Bowl fragment (sherd) probably a waster

Medium:Ceramic (earthenware, thrown) with incised decoration
Geography: Hays South Cemetery site, Yemen
Date: 16th century AD
Object number: 983.243.36
Not on view
DescriptionThis type is made at Hays, but usually they have lead glazes. This one does not, ans seems to be blackened by fire. Given the abundance of kiln furniture at teh site, there is a strong liklihood that this is a waster, a vessel ruined in the firing and discarded.
