Scientifically excavated ceramics from Iron Age northern Iran are very few, but an impression of the typical forms and styles of the period can be gained from excavations at the site of Ghalekuti, on the southwestern coast of the Caspian Sea. Here, graves produced ceramics mostly orange in color and unburnished; bowls are simple, shallow forms with a single elaborate handle, as in this example.
