This pattern is from a Persian repoussé motif on a bronze ewer from the Sassanian period (224BC to 651AD). I think it also has fabulous art nouveau qualities and would fit well with Jugenstil and Wellenstil patterns.
Tomorrow – and you thought it was all over? Well, it turns out I had notes for 15 patterns, so dear tanglers, you have a bonus pattern: ‘Persian Flower Knot’. Make sure you have your glasses on, your tongue ready to stick out slightly and your headache pills ready as it’s a bit of a toughie!
