Bowl (fragment)

This fragment comes from the base of a bowl of pottery. It was discovered with many other pottery fragments in Fustat, near Cairo in Egypt. It was probably made in Syria during the Ayyubid Period of 1171 - 1250.

The fragment of white porcelaneous fritware is painted with a peacock in black, cobalt-blue and brownish red under a clear alkaline glaze.
