Summary

In the second quarter of the seventeenth century, Chinese blue-and-white porcelain production decreased and Iranian potters stepped up manufacture of Chinese-inspired blue-and-white ceramics. The two lions, the swirling fleshy clouds with their vegetal appearance, and the repeating scroll all allude to blue-and-white Chinese export ware.
Made in Iran, possibly Mashhad
