China Inspired Post-Sasanid Iranian Pottery

 

22 September 2004

 

 

Following the discovery of some white and blue porcelain potteries in the historical gardens of the northern Iranian city of Behshahr, experts believe the influence of Chinese porcelain art on Iranian pottery makers is well-documented.


Abbasabad garden complex in Behshahr dates back to the reign of the Safavid Shah Abbas the Great. The 500-hectar property is comprised of several posh mansions, the Freedom Tower, and bath.


“In the latest excavation season, carried out with the intent of recognizing the intricate irrigation system and the eastern gate, some porcelain china with Iranian designs and motifs were unearthed,” said Abdulvahab Musavi-nasab, director of the research center in Behshahr.


One of the discovered vessels is a 45-cm high earthenware pot which clearly manifests the influence of the Chinese craft on Iranian pottery makers. The Abbasabad garden complex is located in the northern Mazandaran province.
