By the beginning of the 13th century, fritware had replaced all other ordinary clay structure in this part of the Islamic world.

This piece was made by fritware potters in the late 12th and early 13th century. Elements thrown and combined, turned down to an impressive thinness and fineness of profile and covered in the most common, but most pleasing of monochrome glazes – opaque turquoise.

This jug shares the same derivation from contemporary metal forms, and illustrate well how the friware potters established in Central Asia in the 12th century were not following a “traditional” ceramic practice, but were inventing an entirely new repertoire of forms for their new material. Jug, monochrome glazed ware. Composite white fritware coated with a light blue glaze which stops short of the base. The globular fluted body rests on a splayed foot-ring and has a tall funnel-shaped neck and a tall handle, decorated with several small knobs is attached. Iran, 12th – 13th century. Prof. Geza Fehervari Prof. Geoffrey King - (JB.1022)
