Fatimid Lustre Painted Ewer - LO.1289, Origin: Egypt, Circa: 910 AD to 1170 AD, Dimensions: 11.50" (29.2cm) high x 5.50" (14.0cm) wide, Collection: Islamic Art, Style:, Fatimid Dynasty, Medium: Glazed Terracotta, Condition: Very Fine, Lustre-painted ceramics represent the largest corpus of Islamic figural art that has come down to us from Fatimid Egypt. Scholars have often argued that the iconography of lustre ceramics from the Fatimid period emerged from a repertoire of Fatimid court painting, now entirely lost. The existence of several reconstructed bowls and countless fragments of lustre from various urban regions of Egypt has led scholars to conclude that the patrons of these ceramics were more likely the urban elite, rather than the court.
