Condition Broken on both ends. Restored from seven pieces. The surface is slightly worn and pitted. The sides are finished.
Description Fragment of a bucchero handle is slightly concave on one side and convex on the other. The piece flares outward toward one end as it approaches the attachment point to the rim the vessel. The handle also thins as it flares outward, so that one end is almost round and the other end flat. On the concave side decoration is preserved. Approximately 0.017 m from the narrow, thick broken edge, there are four transverse, incised lines composed of a fine rope design. Below that are five rows of stamped rhombi. The first row has four rhombi, the second row has five, the third row has six, the fourth row has seven, and the fifth row has eight. In the fifth row of rhombi, six are fully preserved, and portions of two others. Portions of a sixth row are visible, preserving portions of five rhombi. Each rhombus is composed of five horizontal lines.
