Bowl with Deer and Phoenix Motifs

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 455

This bowl is a fine example of the so-called 'Sultanabad' wares which were produced during the Ilkhanid period. This type is characterized by a distinctive glaze, incorporating fine underdrawing in black or grey-green, often combined with cobalt and turquoise accents.
