The Mongol invasions of the mid-thirteenth century put an end to ceramic production at Raqqa. Damascus emerged as an important center in the fourteenth century, and its potteries began to adopt the contemporary styles of Iran. The palette, details, and design of this bowl recall the Ilkhanid "panel style" associated with so‑called Sultanabad ware.
