Green glazed pottery of this kind represents the earliest and longest-lasting tradition of lazing in the Middle-East, stretching back beyond the Islamic period to the Sassanian, Parthian and the Bronze Age.

The colour, green rather than turquoise, and the precisely articulated shape quiet coincidentally recall Chinese wares of Han or early Tang date – but there has been no evidence of contact with Chinese wares at such an early period.

The shape of this vessel seems to have been copied from a metalwork object. - (LK.056)
