Blue-glazed jar with pair of handles
Clay. Iran. 1st-3rd century A.D. Height 31 cm., rim diameter 12.2 cm. Private collection, Tokyo. This piece has a thick rim that spreads outward and a powerful-looking pair of handles on the shoulder. Two projected lines in relief on the lower part of the neck are the only decoration. Probably the entire surface was coated with blue glaze originally, but it has effloresced and is now yellow. Possibly this piece was unearthed from the southwestern region of the Iranian highlands. Scale drawings appear in figure 64.
