Lustre painted large bowl depicting a young
couple sitting in a landscape made of swirling
The sides and the everted rim filled with
concentric registers of foliate kufic inscription
reserved in white over a floral scroll.
A similar dish with slight decorative differences
is in the Khalili collection, where three figures
are shown in a highly stylised landscape.
There is a number of similar lustre painted
dishes and they all represent an interesting
mixture of surviving elements of monumental
and some characteristics of the already
established miniature style in what is soemtimes
called 'large-scale miniature style'.
