An elegant “dragon-shaped” handle is attached. Iran, Khorasan, probably Herat, lat Ilkhanid or early Timurid period, 14th century. Remarks: This ewer may be a prototype of the later brass dragon handled ewers which were made at Herat in Timurid times and later on in India.

A superb, glossy, variegated patina over whole.
