A remarkable collection of metalwork from the Mediterranean, Iraq, Iran, and the Indian subcontinent, published here for the first time.
This volume, the latest in the series on the treasures of The al-Sabah Collection, Kuwait, presents metalwork made in Syria, Egypt, Iraq, and Yemen from the early Islamic period through the end of the Ottoman era in the nineteenth century. The pieces include exquisite platters, serving vessels, candlesticks, and pen boxes produced for royal courts, but also many beautifully decorated bronze domestic items, such as bowls, lunch boxes, door knockers, buckets, and lamps.
