Islamic Antiques

Islamic Antiques

Islamic antiques have had quite a revival in the last few years with good examples keenly fought over at auction.  Decorated metal ware is a staple of the Persian region right back into ancient times.  This week we have been lucky enough to acquire an Persian enamel on copper pharmacy jar with calligraphic script panels.   A very similar item can be found in the Science Museum (Kensington, London) Ethnography & Folk Medicine collection, catalogue reference  A121028.

Also this week we have continued to upload more of the moulded jugs collection with a class Eglinton Tournament jug now being live on the site.
