This extraordinary bowl characterizes Sultanabad wares in every way. Its shape is exquisitely bowl like, a thicker (and often they are more angular than pre-Mongol pieces). We see here the loose spotted and speckled painting, the jumbled background of turquoise, blue and white colored foliage against a stone grey shaded backdrop. The crème in relief is the color of the fritware itself, beneath the glaze A charming and authentic characteristic seen repeatedly in this genre, the thick glaze has a tendency for decay. Fortunately this example of the genre is wonderfully preserved and the colors have withstood the tribulations of time. - (AMD.96)
