Footnotes

  • Provenance: Private French collection since early 20th Century.

    The inscriptions include, 'Sovereignty [is God's]'.

    These fragments would have been part of large pear-shaped jars, a form known in Islamic Spain from the 11th to the 15th Century, which were produced in a number of techniques and with necks of varying heights. An example of a partially-glazed jar from the Almohad period was sold through these rooms (Bonhams, Islamic and Indian Art, 29th April 2004, lot 325); a water-fountain with similar motifs also (Bonhams, Islamic and Indian Art, 16th October 2003, lot 278); and another jar in the National Ceramic Museum, Sevres ("Nasrid Lustre Pottery", Muqarnas, IX, p. 97, fig.5).
