"Produced in the Wan Li era (1573-1619), the Chinese prototypes are more tightly controlled and more elaborate that the museum's Persian version. In place of nine rim panels in the Far Eastern piece our bowl has four, more widely dispersed over the rim area and enclosing loosely executed foliate forms. The elaborate scene usually appearing in the center of such bowls here is reduced to a simple bouqet, now in part reconstruction."

This bowl was modeled on a Chinese vessel of the late 16th century. Below the foliate rim there are six panels with horses in reseve against a background of waves and clouds. Following the system used on Chinese vessels the horses facing different directions are placed in alternation around the bowl. Small tassels hang from the center of each panel, but otherwise the middle zone of the exterior is free of decoration. Overlapping petals are found just above the foot. The internal decoration consists of a floral spray in the foot and eight half-medallions on the rim separated by eight tassels hanging from the rim. <br /><br />

This Qajar dish features three separate compartments and highly decorated exterior panels. Each side of the dish is decorated with a pair of young female faces that alternate with abstract deep blue designs. The interor panels lack decoration aside from the bases of each compartment which contain blue painted floral sprays. The craftmanship of the dish finds roots in the Kashan tradition of the 12th and 13th centuries, making it a testament to the continuation of traditional techniques in the region by the 19th century.
