AbstractMuseum collections often contain items that are inaccurately, or even wrongly, identified. This was the case of a jar belonging to a collection in the West Bohemian Museum in Pilsen. The Iranian jar was apparently acquired at the end of the 19th century and later mistakenly placed in the Chinese collection. This piece shows an interesting example of the evolution of Iranian pottery, but also of the history of the decorative arts collection in the Pilsen museum.
