A small KA bowl with handle--the medial part of the 2-part rim is very weakly expressed, but there is a slight boundary between that first part and the flat lateral rim portion that makes this rim 2-part and not rectangular. There is one large rim chip at the fragment's center that has affected the exterior and interior surfaces. The decoration schema begins with a register of interdigitated triangles on the neck--some are filled with oblique hatches and some are not. The upper row of triangles point downward and the lower row point upward, alternating, interlocking. Below the triangles, on the vessel shoulder, two semi-circular embossed decorations (perhaps concentric circles?) flank the partially preserved pinch handle. The handle has a classic EB saddle-shaped form and is perforated, but it is much too small to "grip" (1.8cm vertically). The exterior bowl surface is actually mottled with the above-mentioned Dark Gray, Dusky Red 2.5YR 3/2, and Black GY1 2.5/N shades. The interior is not mottled like the exterior surface, but features three different colors: the Pinkish Gray above sits on the neck and shoulder, the interior rim hosts mottled Pinkish Gray and Very Dark Gray GY1 3/N, and the interior body hosts Very Dark Gray GY1 3/N in its higher portion and Black GY1 4/N on its lower portion. Both surfaces are polished, with clear horizontal polishing marks preserved on the interior and exterior. The exterior surface is much more abraded than the interior, however. Breaks are rough, no significant corrosion to note.
