Did you know?

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.
