Why this is a
Masterpiece

Owner’s mark: "His servant Mohammed Schafi, owner (is) Her Highness, the Begum." Begum is the title given mainly in North India to female members of the ruling house. This circumstance and a comparable piece in Mumbai lend credence to the bowl being made for the Mughal court. Stylistically, quite a few features argue for an execution by Iranian craftsmen. The decoration, arranged in stripes, shows hunting scenes in front of spiral motifs in the main zone and on the upper edge calligraphy with prayers for the twelve Imams.

History of the Object
Dating inscription: Work of Mirza Mohammed from Runan, end of the month Du-I-qada, in the year 1052 (Hijri A.H.) = 21. January 1643 AD.
