This unusual lidded silver ewer shows evident Persian influence as well as a taste for archaism. The globular center part shows two rows with archaic dragons in high relief standing out prominently against the textured backdrop. The handle is made in the shape of a dog, at the spout sits a little bird and the knob to the lid resembles a humanoid toad. On the underside is an unidentified silver hallmark.
