Fragment of a Bowl with a Horse and Rider


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 303

When intact, this example of Port Saint Symeon ware may have shown the rider hunting with a falcon. It is typical of the wares produced in the 1200s at the Crusader port of the Byzantine city of Antioch, which fell to the Mamluks of Egypt in 1268. Similar examples have been found in Crusader castles in the Holy Land as well as Italy.
