Let's discover together the history of Persian art
Persian pottery has a very long history, which goes back to the 7th millennium BC, the historical period known as Neolithic Age. Persian pottery has been one of the oldest to be created, and became famous for the perfection of its works.
Persian pottery developed mostly during the Islamic period. The pieces that were produced during this time were usually decorated with polychrome figures, naturalistic motifs, metallic glazes and a lot of blue, one of the most used colour in this culture.
Love at first sight
The enameled result was one of the innovations in pottery during this period. All the creations, indeed, had a pleasing luster finish. These pieces were further embellished with gold and silver designs, that gave a metallic look to the final result.
Years after years Persian ceramics came to its glory: this art found a solid place in the European market. Persian pottery was not only bought by a lot of people but inspired also a lot of European art creations. As a matter of fact today a lot of Persian pottery can be seen in Western Museums
