Description:

of helmet form, with shaped and ribbed handle and a flat everted rim with pouring spout, the body, narrowing to a domed foot, decorated with eight leaf-shaped floral panels with alternating blue and gold serrated edging. Below a continuous scrolling blue and gold border, the domed foot decorated in the famille rose palette with flowers in full bloom, the rim exquisitely painted with Koranic inscriptions dated 1845, divided by butterfly shaped panels of dark blue enamel highlighted in gold, the jug further decorated inside and out with stylized ?Ju ? i? motifs in overglaze blue enamels picked out in gold, these echoing the rich and highly stylized Islamic calligraphy.

Period: dated 1845
