Footnotes

  • As seen in the previous lot, this collection illustrates the variety of fritware produced in the late 12th and early 13th Centuries in Persia. The potters were continuously experimenting, producing a wide range of quality fritware, varying in shapes, decoration and sizes, all in a monochrome glaze.
