Shallow lustre painted bowl, the interior decorated with six lustre painted wedge-shaped panels radiating from the centre, each showing large evenly-spaced dots and blade-like arabesques. This type of decoration, known as monumental style, was typical of the earliest and rarest phase of lustre production at Kashan.

For a similarly decorated dish see the one in the Victoria and Albert Museum, formerly in the Ades Family Collection, published in Watson, 1985: fig 13, p.53.
