The monochrome green glaze of this dish is inspired by Chinese celadon ware from Longquan, imported into the Islamic world since the thirteenth century. Its earthenware body is thicker and softer than the Longquan prototype, but the colour of the galze closely resembles that of the Chinese dishes, even though it is produced by copper rather than iron. The Persian green-glazed vessels consist primarily of plates, dishes, and bowls of various sizes, used for serving food and communal eating.
