The discoveries of archaeologists in the Jiroft area show that 7000 years ago, those who lived in such areas were familiar with the pottery industry and its decoration. With the appearance of the first potter's wheel in Ilam, it becomes clear that pottery, earthenware and weaving industry started from the plateau of Iran. The oldest example of glazed terracotta decorations found in Iran is attributed to the "Chagharzanbil Temple" and belongs to the Middle Elam period. The current research is written in descriptive and analytical method and based on the data of library sources. The findings of the research indicate that the oldest pottery found in Iran belongs to the same period.
