Description
Polychrome earthenware (low-fired pottery not fired to vitrification and thus permeable to water) bowl with straight sides continuing onto a raised slanting concave, on a low circular foot. The vessel has been entirely coated with yellow slip- painted background where all the decorative elements depicted in black and olive-green. The interior is been elegantly taken by the figures of three large birds with slender necks in a whirl surrounded by elongated leafs and scrolls in repeated decorative patterns, thus filling the remaining of the surface. On the exterior decorated by series of vertical black painted short strikes, alternating with green and yellow painted ovals. Ceramics from Nishapur were made of diluted clay, typically decorated with strong-colored slips and bold patterns. The spectrum of ornamental motifs was also wide, including geometric and vegetal patterns, calligraphy, figures and animals. Iran, probably Nishapur, 10th century. Comparative material: for similarly decorated vessels, cf. Wilkinson, 1973, also Khalili Collection, cat.nos.60 -61, pp.72-73.
