|Description||This footed bowl is luster painted beige with naskhi inscriptions on the interior and exterior rim. Naskhi was one of the earliest Arabic scripts to evolve. Naskhi displays a rhythmic line written with short horizontal stems. Since the script is relatively easy to read, it appealed to the general population of Arabs and Muslims around the world and more Qur'ans have been written in naskhi than in all other scripts together.
