Early 19th C. Moroccan Pottery Bowl, ex-Museum
Item Details
Description
North Africa, Morocco, Fez region, Islamic Culture, ca. 19th century CE. A gorgeous pottery bowl adorned with blue and white pigments. Sitting upon a ring-form foot, the lovely vessel presents thick walls that rise to a wide, circular rim over a deep basin. The interior and exterior are skillfully glazed with beautiful abstract designs comprised of spiral, geometric, and floral motifs. These patterns are influenced by the cultural blend of Islamic tradition and Berber tribal symbols. Bowls like this one are formed on wheels, then placed out to dry, fired, and painted. Once painted, the pieces are fired a second time to seal the glaze. The Fez region that produces this type of pottery is renowned for its beautiful cobalt hues - like those seen in this example - which is indeed created by crushing cobalt stones. Size: 11.6" Diameter x 5.5" H (29.5 cm x 14 cm)

Provenance: ex-Ashland University Museum, Ashland, Ohio, USA, donated to Ashland University between July 1994 to December 1998
