Description This large jug originally had a handle at its neck. It appears to be the mate of a vase in the National Museum of Iran, Tehran, inscribed with the name of Hasan ibn Salman, who seems to have been an important Iranian "vizier," or minister, and who may have wanted to own a set of large vessels from the famous lusterware workshops in Kashan.
Provenance Henry Walters, Baltimore [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
