    Pottery decorated with incised designs and splashed colored glazes was popular in most areas of the Islamic world. This plate belongs to a group of ceramics reportedly found at the site of Shahr-i Ghulghula at Bamiyan in Afghanistan. While these works are usually described as "Bamiyan," there is no archaeological evidence that they were produced there.
