Jug Flask 3D Model
Jug flask with circular body, molded in two parts, with one handle and a long spout. Kufic inscriptions appear in the center of both sides. Relief ornamentation on one side consists of rosettes, leaves, pomegranates, dotted circles and confronted birds with intertwining necks. The inscription on the flat side reads: “Blessings and prosperity to the owner of this jug. Drink with enjoyment and health a lawful [beverage] that will strengthen you. From the [works] made by Khidash in the style of Gurgan.” The jug recalls the pilgrim flask and is probably one of the earliest signed vessels in Islamic pottery.
Iran, Gurgan, 11th–12th centuries / Unglazed earthenware, cast in a mold / H: 36 cm Diam.; 22 cm
