The red earthenware jug coated with a white ground slip on which decoration is painted in black. The squat globular body is painted with scrolls and geometric patterns covering also the tall straight neck. This type of vessel had apparently some magical connotation and was probably used as a drinking vessel in ceremonial occasions. For a discussion on this type of vessel and comparable examples see: J.Kalter ed, Uzbekistan. Heirs to the Silk Road, 1997: no.271. Jug, buff earthenware with a spherical body, wide waisted neck with a tall handle which has a small thumb-piece on top, resting on a raised base and is decorated with black paintings, showing geometrical patterns and figures of birds and serpents. Central Asia, 7th – 9th century Prof. Geza Fehervari Prof. Geoffrey King - (LO.550)
