Nizami
Wedgwood Fairyland Lustre, Daisy Makeig-Jones for Wedgwood
'Nizami' a Miniature Lustred Siamese Bowl, the well with circular emblem with two deer before a tree, the deer in mother of pearl lustre with a flame background, the bowl with a deep blue ground and gilt design to the rim.

The origins of this range of designs comes from Nizami, the first dramatic poet of Persia, c.1140-1203. His greatest known surviving work is the 'Khamse', which was reproduced in 1928 by Laurence Binyon as 'The Poems of Nizami'. It is the illustrations within this book that Daisy used as her source of inspiration.
This emblem design can be seen in Una des Fontaines' 'Wedgwood Fairyland Lustre', Sotheby Parke Bernet, 1975, page 259, however the deer are in a different orientation.
