Sultanabad ware ewer, before 1220 CE3D Model
Sultanabad ware ewer, before 1220 CE, now in the collection of the Minneapolis Institute of Art.
From the ewer’s description on artsmia.org:
‘After the Seljuk Turks arrived from central Asia, Iranian ceramic production accelerated dramatically, resulting in a vast array of new shapes, styles, and techniques. Among the most spectacular Seljuk pottery was lusterware, which actually was a revival of the Abbasid luster painting that originated around Baghdad during the ninth century. Luster was used to imitate the dazzle of gold in ceramic decor. Themes based on the princely cycle — enthroned personages, conversing couples, or riders incorporated with ornate background patterns and calligraphy — typically decorated pieces such as this ewer.’
