This abkhora has deep well-shaped bowl, open flared mouth and a low ring base. This water vessel is plain inside, while the exterior is fully carved with floral pattern, zodiac symbols and band of inscriptions from Holy Qur’an and other religious tenets. The name ‘Ramazan-bin-Abdullah’ appears on this vessel. This is an important piece as it has Iranian style workmanship and the name of person who offers the water to his master, which is rare.
