The interior of this bown has two zones of decoration: one just below the rim and the other occupying the remainder of the vessel's surface. The rim area has a series of six solid lustre circles, each surrounded by a white zone and separated from the others by a band composed of dots connected by curving lines which suggest a loose scroll decoration. The remainder of the bowl is filled with the stylized figure of a bird shown in profile and executed in reserve against a solid lustre background. The curve of the bird's body echoes the shape of the bowl creating a visual rhythm which moves clockwise from its head through its breast and upturned wing. The tip of the wing touches the end of the bird's long beak and the circular movement is continued by a leaf which hangs from the beak. Originally, the bird's feathers were indicated by a series of fine lines and embellished with dots but now only vestiges of this decoration remain.

"This bowl on a high flaring foot probably was made in Kashan during the early years of the 13th century. Aside from a few touches of blue at the rim, the decoration consists of an undulating arabesque scroll which has been incised into the wall of the vessel just below the rim. The contours of the leaf forms were further defined by punching small holes in the vessel's walls which were subsequently filled by the transparent glaze. The connection of this group to Kashan is suggested by a bowl now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in which the interior of the vessel has blue and black underglaze painting in a style well known from other Kashan wares." -PPS
