Description
Though the potters of Kashan also made Mian’i and lusterware, they developed specific techniques, styles and methods of painting for each genre. Production of Kashan pottery was finally brought to a halt by the Mongol incursions toward the end of the second decade of the 13th Century.?

This beautiful vase has an elegant and modern feel to it, and indeed it was a precursor to more modern styles and methods of ceramic art. The vase has an open lipped mouth, which tapers into a long shapely neck. The neck is adorned with a scrolling black arabesque necklace encased in shading of sky blue. The neck stretches down to a broad smooth shoulder. The black collar at the shoulder has several further black columns draped from it down to the foot of the piece and each contains an undecipherable benediction. Made of white composite fritware, this exquisitely shaped vase is underglaze painted in blue and black under a transparent glaze, which stops short of the a low splayed foot ring. - (AMD.03)
