Description
Sgraffiato pottery belonged to one of the most important and earliest wares of Central Asia. It was suggested that the Sgraffiato technique was invented and introduced by the Copts of Egypt as early as the 4th and 5th centuries AD.

This vessel falls under the category of “simple Sgraffiato”. It is additionally decorated wit splashes of green. This vessel must have been coated with a thick ground white or creamy slip into which the designs were applied and then coated with a colourless glaze, which frequently has a strong greenish tinge. The decoration of this vessel is simple. It consists of an intertwined motif which runs around the globular body. - (AMD.09)
