Bowl 1300-1350 Iran, probably Sultanabad Fritware with underglaze-painted design Diameter: 31.5 cm (12 3/8 in.); Overall: 9 cm (3 9/16 in.) Gift of the John Huntington Art and Polytechnic Trust 1915.591 DESCRIPTION Sultanabad wares were the first new type of pottery made in Iran after the Mongol conquest. These underglaze painted wares are characterized by a somber color scheme of gray, black, and white. The name "Sultanabad" comes from the modern city near which they were first discovered. This type of pottery was widely exported, perhaps even imitated, for it has been excavated over a vast area from central Asia to Egypt.

The Mughal Images immediately took a much greater interest in realistic portraiture than was typical of Persian miniatures. Animals and plants were the main subject of many miniatures for albums and were more realistically depicted. To upload your images click here.
