15th Century Clay Middle Eastern Vessel
A fragmented black drinking vessel, the body swelling from a splayed foot and culminating in a horned rim with a three-ringed carved lip. The exterior is dusted, with a protruding long handle. Possibly Mamluk – an Arabic designation for slaves, referring to Muslim slave soldiers and Muslim rulers of slave origin.
Spout is 7 in. long 1.25 in. wide / Body 5 in. tapers down to 1.5 in. base / 7.25 tall
