Interesting pottery tile, antique, likely from Qajar period.

The tile is likely from a water fountain in a mosque for the ritual wash, since there's a hole below where a pipe would have been connected to the fauset.

A very interesting and beautiful tile with a winged and human headed lion wearing a kings crown, standing in a garden, inscribed and possibly dated. Interesting and a motif that is seen on the Seljug period wares.

Size: 23,5 cm. in diameter.

Condition: Choice and intact, with finely crackled glaze and patina, some abbrasions and wear and tear.

Ex. Old Swedish private collection
