Loetz.com lists this as a variant of PG 1/473 decor category because of several Creta examples that all exhibit a decoration consisting of small silver-yellow dots applied over the entire vessel along with an additional application of much larger spots. The main difference between these examples and PG 1/473 is that the spots on PG 1/473 are all similar in size. This observation most likely indicates that it is probably an unidentified decor, but for now will be listed as a variant of PG 1/473.
