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 bodys 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:
