Fragmentary Ewer with Polychrome Luster Decoration

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 451

The small circles filling some of the sections on this two-toned luster ewer might have been inspired by millefiori mosaic glass, since they seem to imitate the designs on such pieces. Although the ewer is fragmentary, it is possible to visualize its original large size and unusual angular profile.
