    This splendid footed bowl, now missing its lid, is elaborately decorated with a variety of human and animal figures, calligraphy, and geometric and pseudo-vegetal patterns. The poetic inscription and the medallion bearing an eagle, repeated four times on the body, do not help link this luxury object to a particular sultan or emir.
