Photograph of Hala pottery from Hala in Sind, Pakistan, taken by Henry Cousens in 1896-7. This image shows a collection of three decorative glazed pottery vases and a table top; the large central vase is 38 inches high. Cousens wrote in The Antiquities of Sind, "[New] Hala, thirty-five miles north of Haidarabad, is at present the home of this art, where it is still being carried on by a few families...Besides tiles, ornamental pottery is also turned out. It was started at the Bombay School of Art, potters from Sind and Multan having been brought there for a time to superintend."
