Footnotes

  • Provenance:

    Formerly in a Private Parisian Collection.

    The inscriptions comprise a repetition of the word Allah.

    Incised ware pottery of the Mamluk period is marked by being decorated almost exclusively to the interior, while metalwork of the same period is decorated to the exterior. It has been suggested that the group of roughly potted bowls decorated with blazons and inscriptions to which the present bowl belongs was kitchen ware, produced in mass quantities for the mighty numbers of the Mamluk army.
