Abhaya Asian Antiques
Large early Islamic Central Asian, Persian polychrome pottery bowl decorated with lively composition of animals - Circa 9/10th CE. Large repair (noted in last enlargements) and typical fritting. The red clay body was dipped in a white slip with decorative brown glaze- immersed in a final clear glaze to prevent the other colored glazes from running. The apparently random use of turquoise colored glaze is quite attractive. Fired at a moderate heat. D: 25.5cm/10in and H: 7cm/2.8in.
