Summary/Abstract: The article discusses one of the most mysterious types of medieval tableware – sphero-conical vessels. In search of the centers of production of these vessels and the possible routes of their entry to Volga Bulgaria, we paid our attention to the Transcaucasian region, where sphero-conical vessels were not only found but also produced. The research led to the attribution of a small set of sphero-conical vessels represented in the exhibition of the Kurdamir Local History Museum in the Republic of Azerbaijan.
