Ayyubid Rider on Bowl, 13th Century

Source: Museum With No Frontiers
Hegira 7th / AD 13th century, Ayyubid
Stone-paste ceramic painted with brown, blue, green and red underglaze
The British Museum, London, United Kingdom
The colourful decoration of the horseman on this ceramic bowl imitates a type of ceramic that originated in Iran. Enamelled ceramics, or mina'i ware, were exported from Iran to Syria, where potters imitated the style using underglaze painting rather than enamels.
