Small green-glazed jars with pair of handles
Clay. Iran. 1st-3rd century A. D. Left: height 11.9 cm. Center: height 10.7 cm. Right: height 10.1 cm. Left: Private collection, Tokyo. Center and right: collection of Mr. and Mrs. Kōjirō Ishiguro, Tokyo (no. E. 38). Each of these jars is a small green-glazed piece with a pair of handles. The handles of the pieces at the right and center were attached to the body after being made separately in a tubelike shape. Those on the piece at the left were made by sticking a lump of clay to the jar and making a hole in its center. The pieces on the right and center have flat bases.
