This bowl is Sari ware, the traditional term that refers to the town of Sari in northern Persia where it was previously assumed that pottery of this distinctive type was made. This has not been confirmed, and modern excavations have in fact shown that the type was made in Gorgan among other places.

Sari ware is known for its characteristic palette and monumental figurative depictions, especially of birds. Proof of posting is obtained for all items (copy available on request).
