Bowl Decorated in the 'Beveled Style'

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 451

The Beveled style of surface ornament painted onto the surface of this bowl is similar to that seen on the molded stucco surfaces of the palaces in Samarra. This motif, which first appeared in ninth‑century Samarra, spread to a variety of places, including Samarqand.
