A large globular bowl standing on a round foot with an everted rim. The beautiful vegetation and swirl motifs painted in black contrast wonderfully with the intense turquoise blue under-glaze to create an eye-catching composition.
Black painted ceramics with blue under-glaze are traditionally attributed to the site of Raqqa which has provided a large number of related ceramics. This northern Syrian caravan city was a major production center for terracotta vessels under the Ayyubids, until being conquered by the Mongols in 1259. Remains of pottery firing debris have been discovered, proving, in a somewhat unique way, the activity which was practiced there.
