The technique known as "black line and colored glazes", formerly called "cuerda seca", follows the technique of ceramic mosaic and was developed in Central Asia from the second half of the fourteenth century. We find elements of coating of this type on the mausoleum of the Timurid dynasty in Samarkand, the Guri Amir (Arthur Pope, A Survey of Persian Art, Oxford University Press, London, vol. IV, p 421).
