Many Samanid slipwares are decorated with abstract designs such as the ovals around the body and pseudo glyphs on the neck of this early and rare jug. Later examples sport palmettes and scrolls. The technical and artistic quality, in the crispness of execution and sureness of placing are noteworthy even on this more primitive example. This magnificent earthenware jug, which reflects a simpler decoration, exerts as much charm as any other one might see from a later more sophisticated time. It features a white slip with black, olive, white and red slip decoration under a transparent glaze.

For a very similar example see Oliver Watson, Ceramics from Islamic Lands, cataloging the Al- Sabah Collection in the Kuwait National Museum, 2004. cat. Gb.13 JUG. - (AMD.144)
