Bowl with Stylized Bird

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 453

Amul ware is named after a town in northern Iran where early collectors obtained several examples of this type of ceramic, but the actual production site is unknown. These wares are coated with a thick creamy slip that is incised to reveal the reddish body beneath, highlighted with green pigments, and then covered in a transparent glaze.
