Lustre vase with figural decoration
Sharjah, United Arab Emirates (Sharjah)
Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilisation
Hegira late 6th century / AD late 12th century
SM 2006 - 964
This tall fritware vase with its facetted body, tapering neck and projecting lip most certainly copies a metal prototype. Its sides are covered by two horizontal registers above and below, with individual seated figures reserved against a solid lustre background. A band of abstract scrolling separates the registers around the middle.
