lid (containers)

Lid with a knob, glazed and painted in browns, green, black, pink. It is decorated with four anthropomorphic figures, two pairs each, of a praying figure and a figure which is half human and half animal; all are in Thai dress. Between the panels are flames on a black ground. The inside of the body and lid are of different colours, possibly from two different but similar pots, or it may be that the bowl has been more used than the lid.
