    Composite body with underglaze paint; W. 7 1/2 in. (19.1 cm)

    The design of this tile was strongly influenced by Chinese models, in both composition and color. The Egyptian taste for blue-and-white botanical designs was filtered through Iranian versions from the Ilkhanid period (1256–1353). It is known that Iranian artists moved westward at the beginning of the fifteenth century.
