This is a Persian interpretation of a Chinese type which can be dated on the basis of shape--that aspect which the Near Eastern potter chose to adopt. The polygonal alteration of the rim was a late 16th century development in the Chinese tradition. The well-defined scenes and foliage of he Far Eastern model have been more impressionistically rendered and the vocabulary of vegetal forms has been drastically reduced.

This fragment was possibly a waster since it does not have a firm base, nor does the glaze complement or enhance the faint design painted underneath. The first band of spiked forms immediately below the borken neck seems closer to the later 16th century Chinese derivatives. The second band is a Persian adaptation of numerous related designs which hang down from a border or protrude up from a base line. This border may be compared to the floral patterns on Kirman ceramics--the combination of narrow vines or stems and large leaf forms. The unusual effect of the glaze may be a common error in the firing of an iron based dull green glaze used for the Kirmani 'celadon'. It therefore seems logical that this piece is from 17th century Kirman.

The unglazed ewer consists of two parts: a bulbous body with narrow, well-defined foot ring and short columnar neck; and a spout joined in the form of an anmial's head. A handle extends from the base of the head to the shoulder of the body. Around the upper part of the body runs an Arabic verse in Naskhi script. The moulded relief inscription is set against a background of floral scrolls. The meter is Tawil: (translated) Behold, poverty hopes for wealth, while wealth fears poverty." The verse appears in the 'Iqd al-Farid, compiled by Ibn 'Abd Rabbihi, who attributes it to 'Ali. The column above the body narrows to form a shoulder, on which the head has been set. The head is a cone, the narrow end of which serves as the animal's nose and has a small hole for pouring out the contents of the ewer. Over the base of the cone jut two pointed ears. Two loops are fastened below them to the shoulder of the neck. Small discs, serving as eyes, have been applied in the front of the ears. The hole for insertion of the liq
