Lot 288


 A Group of Important Works - To be Sold Without Reserve

An intact Raqqa ware pottery basin,

Near East, 13th century,

On a foot with recessed base, the body with slightly tapering sides opening out to a wide rim, the body decorated under a dark turquoise glaze in black with diagonal bands, 11.3cm. high

Provenance: Ferri, Drouot Richelieu, Paris, 5th December 2008, Lot 364 (part lot).

Under U. V light this lot renders colours of khaki for the iridescent areas, dark blue verging on black for the glaze and deep ochre for the paste. The only noticeable variation is seen on the foot were a trace renders a whitish colour running along the base of the body perhaps suggesting a skillful repair and restoration. However, the craquelure of the glaze is even overall, and so is the iridescence and the external glaze drips not showing any unexpected irregularities would contradict any breaks or repairs to the base or body of this work. The fritted straight foot is not levelled and may have been ground in part. This lot is in a condition consistent with its age.
