Botella con boca polilobulada

Nº Inventario: CFC09
Descripción: Pasta de frita, pintada en negro y azul cobalto bajo vidriado turquesa
Dimensiones: Height: 29.4 cm; width: 17.9 cm; diameter of mouth: 7.8 cm; diameter of base: 9.2 cm.
Decoración: Each part of the bottle has a distinctive decoration. The mouth is decorated just below the lip with a black band inscribed with illegible, cursive script, and its lobes with an alternating design of a sketchy leaf scroll and an ovoid medallion with split leaves. These motifs appear to be “washed” in blue where the cobalt ran during firing.
There is also a pseudo-inscription band in angular script around the neck between thick black lines. The flat shoulders are decorated with a sketchy scroll in black, and blue wash.
The body’s main decoration consists of a series of rather flat circles outlined in black, punctuated with black dots, and filled in with blue wash. The circles are framed above and below with pseudo-inscriptions on black ground, similar to those beneath the lip, which are linked to the circles by slightly curved black lines. The connection points are marked by a series of curving triangular panels filled in with sketchy dashes. The lower body is decorated with fish-like or elongated leaf forms and a very thick and irregular black band above the foot ring.
Observaciones: The overall shape of this bottle, with its globular body, straight neck and multi-lobed mouth or cup, derives from medieval Islamic metalwork. Quite a large number of similar vessels, with both lobed and smooth mouths, are known. Some have monochrome glazes and many are overglaze painted in luster, rather than underglaze painted as here. All have distinctive decorations.
Estado: One side is extremely iridesced

Los usuarios comprobarán que hay registros incompletos y desiguales en contenido, campos que deberán ser revisados e imágenes que iremos sustituyendo a medida que se vayan haciendo las campañas fotográficas. Todo ello será un trabajo de meses y quizá de años que deseamos no demore la accesibilidad de las personas interesadas en conocer nuestras colecciones. Rogamos nos disculpen estas deficiencias que iremos subsanando de manera escalonada y de la cual daremos periódicamente cuenta en nuestra página web y redes sociales.
