Lot 348


To Be Sold With No Reserve

An incised turquoise blue glazed globular pottery jug with felines,

Iran, 12/13th century with later restoration

On short conical foot, the globular body rising to a flaring neck with scalloped rim, the scrolling decoration consisting of felines amidst large flowers, the straight ladder handle with two openwork bulbous thumb rest, very good condition

19.6cm. high

Provenance: Property from a Private London Collection acquired prior to 1979

This lot presents as clean overall. However, under U. V light the body and the neck render two very distinctive colours : a dark spinach green and a light blue verging on light turquoise. The same colours can be seen on the handle. This likely suggest the neck is a later restoration. The handle shows both colours scattered along its length. It is probably the result of it being restored form a mix of fragment and modern paste. Some minute crack where the handle joins the body would support this probability. The foot is restored, showing traces of plaster or past which has been ground in part.
