Persian Bridge Spouted Pottery Tepe Sialk Jar

Tepe Sialk Bridge Spouted Pottery Jar from circa 1st millennium B.C.E., Central Iran. Rounded body and a short concave neck with an attached loop handle and a smaller handle at the back. The birdlike spout as well as the body is painted in brown and black with a variety of patterns including checkerboard and hatched and wavy lines. The decoration is vivid, and with the exception of a repair to the spout, this rare Persian piece is in very good condition. 10 1/8 inches high . Tepe Sialk is a large ancient archaeological site (a tepe or Persian tappeh, "hill" or "mound") in a suburb of the city of Kashan, Isfahan Province, in central Iran, close to Fin Garden. The culture that inhabited this area has been linked to the Zayandeh Rud Civilization.
