This beautifully glazed jug is identified as Persian monochrome glazed fritware. The granular base clay is a buff color, covered by a white slip, then a brilliant turquoise glaze. The turquoise glaze covers the whole of the interior as well as the exterior of the piece almost to the foot rim. The foot rim and base of the jar are unglazed. The glaze and slip are slightly unevenly applied, and pool thickly near the bottom of the jar - a characteristic of this type of pottery. A geometric pierced decoration surrounds the whole body. The jug was probably made in Kashan between the 12th and 13th centuries - the clay, glaze and form being characteristic of ceramic pieces of that area and time frame. - (JB.1016)
