Beautiful Antique Persian Islamic Solid Silver Quran Case / Box; Qajar c 1890:
$67

Beautiful and Rare Qajar era Persian Solid Silver Quran Case c1890

Quality example featuring intricate all over hand chased Islamic inscriptions on the hinged lid and on the sides.

Beautifully proportioned octagonal box with a width of 51mm.

For similar samples see Christies sale April 26th 2013 - The Arts of Islam, lot number 697. Christies describes them as Quran holders. I had previously and presumably incorrectly supposed that they might be Turbah holders.

Condition is very good. The 3 hinge pins are rudimentary replacements of a very soft yellow metal which I presume to be a good quality copper alloy. I personally think it would detract from the object if these were replaced.

There are no hallmarks or makers marks.

Fine Antique Persian Solid Silver treasure and a Rare and interesting aspect of antique Islamic art.
