This decoration of animals on a foliate background is characteristic of the so-called Sultanabad group, probably produced in Kashan towards the end of the 13th-14th centuries. The scalloped shape of the dish is also found on a piece from the same period in the Kuwait Museum (Oliver Watson, Ceramics from Islamic Lands, the al-Sabah Collection, Kuwait National Museum, Thames & Hudson, London, 2004, cat. Q.22, p. 392). A 'Sultanabad' dish with the same decoration of two hares is preserved in the Sarikhani Collection (Oliver Watson, Ceramics of Iran, Islamic Pottery fom the Sarikhani Collection, Yale University Press, 2020, cat.17, p. 334).
