Description
Elegant pear-shaped fluted body with curving cut-away spout, of a vaguely zoomorphic (bovine?) appearance, on a large splayed foot. Arching strap handle with thumb-rest at the top and herring-bone incisions Two bands with inscriptions divide the body into three separate sections decorated by three series of petal-shaped elongated depressions in rows. Ewers with pear-shaped bodies, as this one, continued reproducing the general form of metal ewers made by Iranian metalworkers under the Sasanian dynasty (ca. 224-631AD. ) and continue to be fabricated in Iran in the centuries following the Islamic conquest in the 7th century. - (JB.1330)
