Small jug with globular body and straight tall
neck and curved handle, all coated with tomato
red ground slip. The surface covered with
alternated triangles in rows painted in
manganese, dotted in white and filled with yellow
and black strokes.
Coloured gound slip ares were popular not only
in Khurasan and Mazandaran, but also in Kirman
province. In fact, manganese and tomato red
painted slip ware were excavated at Ghubayra in
Kirman province, dcorated with white and yellow
paintings.They were also excavated at Afrasiyab
and in Afghanistan, suggesting that they were
traded long distances.
