Persian Ceramic Shallow Dish, Qajar Dynasty Iran, 19th Century
Secure Payments By
This delightful dish features many of the typical motifs of the revivalist ceramic produced during the Qajar dynasty in the latter part of the 19th century. Having taken part in a number of the great international expositions, Persia developed its pottery to blend tradition with modernity. Some of the themes of this pottery hark back to the designs of the great Safavid Dynasty, and the materials used are also similar. This dish is made from fritware, a clay body with ground glass that gives a slightly porcellanous feel to what is in effect earthenware. The dish is painted with a formal floral pattern and the bright glazes run together to some extent, typical of this kind of ware. The foot is unglazed (on this dish there is the residue of some black organic matter). A lovely example of a type of pottery not now easy to find.
25 cm (10 inches) in diameter, 5 cm deep.

Very good condition, no chip, cracks or restoration. There is a glaze pop on the rim and two other small glaze stains on the rim (these have been on the dish since it was made). The underside is fairly roughly glazed - again all part of the original look of this piece.
