The fascination of Persian potters with Chinese designs and techniques is evident in this bowl, attributable to modern-day Sultanabad in western Iran. The decoration, perhaps inspired by Chinese textiles, consists of a radial floral design, achored by a stylized lotus flower. Similar lotus flowers, as well as phoenixes and dragons, became standard decorative elements in 14th-century Il-Khanid art and can be seen in many different media.
