Baked clay plate with vegetal motif. Paste is a gray-white porcelain, glaze is glossy with a few cracks. The plate was fired upright and contains cobalt on light gray-white colors. The plate is attributed to Kerman of the Safavid period. The swirling treatment of the vegetal forms reflect the Persian adaptation of Chinese wares that occured in this area. Also attributed to Kerman is the dark blue color used to define the painted areas without the hardegded precision of other production centers.

A rectangular shaped plate with eight circular patterns. The rim is slightly flared out to create the concave shape. The top surface is unglazed, scorched to an intense red. The bottom does not have foot. In the kiln, the thick clay slabs were stacked close together so that the floating ash landed on the edge of the plate facing the flame. The circular patterns are areas that were protected from the flame by cylinder clay spacers.
