Overall: 8.4 x 35.6 cm (3 5/16 x 14 in.)
Gift of the John Huntington Art and Polytechnic Trust 1915.594
This type of pottery is named after a town in the Caucasus, but most Kubachi wares were likely made in northwestern Iran.
A long-legged bird, possibly a crane, is surrounded by flowers on the inside of the bowl. The rim is encircled by a band of undulating stems and flowers in red, deep blue, turquoise-green, white, and dull green-gray. The exterior features only the crackle glaze.
