Amlash Terracotta Pouring Vessel

Amlash Terracotta Pouring Vessel
Circa 1st millennium - 8th century BC

A fine moulded Amalsh terracotta pouring vessel featuring a squat, globular body rising from a flat base and narrowing into a short neck that connects to a wide opening with an everted rim. A tubular spout, connected to the interior body, extends from the bottom.

The term ‘Amlash Culture’, has generally been used to designate material cultures excavated at Gilan, an archaeological site of ancient Iran, and refers to a group of Iron Age pottery and metal executions with a strong visual character. Most of the Amlash pottery vessels are believed to have been stylistically and typologically inspired by bronze wares of the same period.

Provenance: Ex London collection, formed pre 1992.
