Description

Label:

Endless knots, arabesques, and gazelle-like creatures in leafy foliage fill the panels of this bowl decorated in the popular radiating panel style. Though these decorations are typical in Persian art, the thinness of the ceramic body, the high flaring sides, the narrow footring, and the exterior decoration of lotus petals imitate Chinese models.

This bowl was made during the period when Mongol dynasties ruled both Persia and China. Mongol rule across much of mainland Asia facilitated trade and allowed both Persians and Chinese to see more of each other's luxury goods.
