  • Tile, first half of 15th century; Mamluk
    Syria
    Composite body with underglaze paint; W. 6 5/8 in. (16.8 cm)
    Museum Accession (x.228.1)

    The background of tightly coiled spirals and the use of black, blue, and turquoise underglaze pigments betray the Syrian provenance of this tile. The lidded ewer on a stand, a form that is still popular in the Middle East, is a recurrent motif based on contemporary metal examples.
