This type of pottery is named after a town in the Caucasus region, but likely most Kubachi wares were made in northwestern Iran.

Description

Sprigs of flowers flowing from little tufts of grass decorate the inside of this bowl. Its sides are divided into panels by thin black lines. The outside is divided into two bands of decoration: above are scale-like motifs formed by black lines worked in with blue and below are arabesques with simple leaves in cobalt blue, copper green, and red-brown.
