Samarkand / Islamic/TID Origin, Age Help please many thanks

Post by ClaraIreland2 on January 15th 2016, 2:53 pm

Good afternoon and thanks for looking at this Islamic pierced reticulated bowl in Turkish iznik colours. I love it and am puzzling about its age, origin etc.  I would be very grateful for any information from colleagues at 20th century Forum.  I bought this with another enormous bowl, photo attached which looks to me like Safi or Moroccan? There are no makers marks on either bowl.

Many thanks

Well it's nice to get a few things posted here I can help with.

Images 1,2,4 are Indian and reflect a style of pottery that has its origins a pretty long time back. The pottery has an almost biscuit texture to it and is still made today. I believe it comes from an area to the west of India, close to Pakistan as the designs have origins in the Muslim faith (no animals or people). I have seen the backs marked with Islamic script, seen them unmarked or a single word India written in English. They can be 10 minutes old or a 150 years. Think yours comes from the 1st part of the 20th century as it has some quality but the damage kills the value  Embarrassed  

Image 3 comes from Morocco. Very typical of what is produced. Normally marked with the town of origin Safi or Fes. But equally can be found plain like this. Made right up to today and sometimes aged to pretend they are older than they are. It deserves to be filled with a lot of food and deposited on a dining table near you soon Most Excellent

Thank you so much for the detailed information. I would certainly have spent aeons researching this piece and still not come to a definitive identification without your help. I had thought about having it restored but probably not a project for me. Best wishes and many thanks
