Bowl with Radiating Panel Design

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 455

Panel-style bowls, so called because of the wedge-shaped panels that make up their interior decoration, were typically produced in Kashan, one of the primary ceramic centers in Iran during the fourteenth century. Modeled after Chinese celadon bowls in form, this influence is also present in the highly abstracted lotus petals on this bowl’s exterior.
