Splashed 'Sgraffiato' Dish - JB.1284, Origin: Central Asia, Circa: 1100 AD to 1200 AD, Collection: Islamic Art, Style: Sgraffiato Ware, Medium: Earthenware. This stunning Bowl has decoration incised (hence “Sgraffiato”) through a white slip, with lively coloring in various shades of brown, purple and green bringing a warm ethnic energy to the piece, under a transparent glaze. The main decorative motif is a geometric rosette made up of eight palmettes each of which is separated by a vertical incised line. Each palmette is incised with a decorative “pine-cone” design that gives the piece a very organic feel. The greater body of the piece is decorated in a similar style but in larger size. The entire bowl is highlighted in green with additions of intermittent splashes of purple and green on the rim.
