Syria and Iran: three studies in medieval ceramics
Published by Oxford University Press for the Faculty of Oriental Studies, University of Oxford, 1987 - Antiques & Collectibles - 246 pages
This volume includes: an essay that identifies and categorizes Tell Minis ware, a hitherto unrecognized class of 12th-century Syrian pottery; an important, previously unpublished article by the late Andrew Williamson on the distribution of glazed ceramics in medieval Iran; and a study on the ceramics excavated by Williamson at the site of medieval Sirjan in Kirman province.
