Group of approximately 10,000 terracotta vase fragments.

The von Bothmer Fragment Collection; terracotta; Greek, 6th–4th century B.C.; TR.572.2011, accession numbers pending; Dietrich von Bothmer, Distinguished Research Curator, Greek and roman art
No further information was provided there.

However some group photographs are now available.
