Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description American excavations in Fustat have uncovered many examples of these unglazed earthenware jugs. This one has two inscriptional bands in relief and an animal frieze on an arabesque ground. The middle section was made from a mold, and this suggests that these types of jugs were made in multiples. Fustat was, in fact, acclaimed during the medieval period for ceramic mass production. It should be noted, however, that similar examples were also discovered at sites in Syria and Afghanistan.
