An Islamic Bull Headed Ewer With Engraved Palmette Decoration 11th-12th Century For Sale
An Islamic bull headed ewer with engraved palmette decoration, purportedly Iran 11th-12th century. My friend bought this ewer at Timeline sales a few years ago where it was provenanced to an English collection formed in the mid-20th century and described as 11th-12th century. Timeline are rigorous about authentication and use a panel of experts to determine dates. However, we are not personally completely confident of the date of this very unusual ewer and buyers should rely on their own experience and judgement in determining the date of production and decoration.
Usual wear and encrustation typical of suggested age.
165mm in height
