In the third register are badly damaged representations of what appear to be boats. The bottom is decorated with lotus petals. Condition: Surface brown and a great deal of bare metal. Two holes which may be casting flaws. Body dented and weakened by previous attack of bronze disease. Some traces of recurrent disease. Handle cracked in several places and cannot bear the weight of the vessel.
