A very unusual object in the Nishapur finds, the decoration of this bowl was decorated made by scratching a design into white slip and then dipping the vessel into a transparent green glaze. The production of this bowl cannot be attributed with certainty to a specific location.
1937, excavated at Sabz Pushan in Nishapur, Iran by the Metropolitan Museum of Art's expedition; 1938, acquired by the Museum in the division of finds
