Bowl, 18th century
Lusterware was a dominant type of ceramic production in medieval Iran, possibly having spread from Egypt in the early 12th century. Within Iran, the town of Kashan was the finest producer of lusterware and manufacture was at its peak during the 12th and 13th centuries.Human interaction with lusterware vessels and tiles over time has enhanced variations in color and luminescence.
