Unknown: Antique 18th Century Persian Bowl

The Work of Art

18th Century Persian Dish

This blue and white glazed bowl is an example of Eighteenth Century middle-eastern decorative ceramic ware. It has a floral pattern in the centre in blues and heavy black lines. From similar examples in other collections, the bowl is likely to be attributed to Iran and the Qajar Dynasty and is of stone-paste design. The  bowl shows signs of wear and tear and subsequent restorative work  which has yellowed in time.
