Early Middle Eastern or Persian Pottery Bowl


Early Middle Eastern or Persian Pottery Bowl







Early Middle Eastern or Persian Pottery Bowl
This bowl was given to my family in the late 1960's from a visiting professor from Azerbaydzhan, then a republic of the Soviet Union, located on the Northern border of Iran on the Caspian Sea. My guess is it is likely Iranian, Persian if older, possibly Syrian, and likely made in the late 19th to early 20th Century. It is similar in style and coloration to the old Persian Iznik pottery of the 16th-17th Centuries but less refined in technique and design. It is hand-painted in three colors of glaze, white, turqoise and brownish-purple. It has the three unglazed spots in the center of the bowl where the spacers where placed between the objects when stacking them in the kiln for firing. The rim design is a series of nine classic Islamic motifs, the center design a cross with surrounding quadrant of foliage. The clay color is light terra cotta. Is in in very good condition, with one half inch chip in the center of the bowl, and one clay chip on the rim along with a few minor glaze chips. It has an 1/8 inch foot, is 10 1/4 inches in diameter, and about 1 1/2 inches deep.
