Abstract

This article provides information about a red clay jug with paint drips from the Navbagtepa monument in the Karakhanid period. It is noted that in late antiquity and the early Middle Ages it was a tradition to cover the surface with paint drip of handmade and wheel made unglazed ceramics. This type of ornamentation was initially used to decorate vessels in the middle reaches of the Syr Darya, and then in the regions of Semirechye, Tashkent, Sogd, Fergana, etc. The method of this decoration is quite simple, and it continues to be used not only in Sogd, but throughout Maverannahr.
