DescriptionThis vessel carries a poem and is dated: "O master who has both reason and judgement in your intellect; May you forget all the World’s sorrows; Whenever you desire food; May whatsoever you eat from this bowl benefit you; May the high Heavens bow to your wishes; May you not be harmed by the evil eye. And that was written in the blessed month of Ramadan, of the year seven hundred and twenty nine" (July 1329).
