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.
