Catalogue Note

This elegant tile combines Middle Eastern and Far Eastern motifs as characteristic of Mamluk pottery which was influenced by the influx of Chinese blue and white ceramics into the Middle East in the late fourteenth century; note the painterly quality of the Chinese-style crane shown in the act of catching a fish.
