This extremely unusual 6 handled terracotta vase dates to the Seljuk period (1037-1194 A.D) of the middle East. The vase has subtle and incised decoration beneath the 6 handles and would have contained fluids. To keep the contents cool the heat of the water was absorbed through the terracotta vessel and evaporated the heat through the unglazed terracotta body thereby keeping the contents cool. Very seldom encountered in this condition or form. A worthy addition to any collection of middle eastern ceramics.
Harvey Evans Antiques has clarified that the C.12th Century A.d.seljuk Unglazed Terracotta 6 Handled Jug (LA361513) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being C. 12th Century A.D.
