Description
This is a wonderful Ewer from the Middle East. With a streamlined floral pattern which compliments the concept of a pitcher, the pinnacle resembles a Dome which is an essential part of the architectural canons of the region. The mouth of the Ewer is elaborate and its handle is arched to ensure ease while serving and also has grooves to facilitate firm grip. The ergonomics indicate that this Ewer was not a mere showpiece but was utilised when the aristocrats revelled and gathered together.
