Lusterware Bowl


Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description In Arab countries and Muslim realms in the Mediterranean region, artistic innovation flourished in the 9th-14th centuries. Lusterware was among the most original development of Arab potters, who mixed silver sulfides and copper oxides to create a shiny, metallic sheen on the surface of glazed earthenware vessels, such as this bowl.
