|Context||Ming dynasty blue and white ware bowl influenced the design and shape of Kubachi wares from Iran. 'Kubachi ware' is a term coined for the style of pottery found in the village of Kubachi in Dagestan in the Caucasus; it is believed that this pottery was not made in Kubachi but exchanged for items produced in the town's foundries (for example, firearms).|
