Nishapur began to assume major influence from the mid 9th century AD, becoming in the 10th through the 12th centuries one of the great political, commercial, and cultural centres in the Islamic world. Nishapur was well situated among the Silk Road across which goods were exchanged between the Far and the Near East.

Ceramics that were produced at Nishapur were of bold style and showed links with Sassanian and Central Asian work. The style originated in Transoxania, during the 9th century AD only to die out in the 10th century AD. This bowl is decorated in black, with characteristic orange and yellow pigments. The decoration consists of symmetrical and abstract motifs, with linear and circular designs dominating the entire bowl.

Special mention should be made of the advanced development of painting techniques seen in Nishapur’s ceramic wares. - (AMD.14)
