Extremely Fine Museum Quality Antique Persian Qajar Islamic Brass Box C 1800's For Sale
For sale is this breathtaking antique Persian Qajar box.
The box dates from late 19th century during late 1800's.
It is extremely rare in two ways: Firstly the box contains a portrait of the very famous Safavid King - Shah Abbas. Secondly, it has been decorated with genuine real Turquoise stones. I have never seen a Qajar box of this quality ever before on .
It has been hand chased with some of the most beautiful scenes I have ever seen in my life.
There are some very intriguing scenes. The top cover consists of a main focus point of a scene with four Qajar men and women.The surrounding areas have been hand chased with floral patterns which are extremely fine quality.
The back has been completed with a breathtakingly detailed scene of Qajar men which seem to be of great importance.
Included in this scene I think is the very famous Safavid King Shah Abbas. He is seated in the top row at the centre with another gentleman.
The way he is seated with his very distinctive moustache, sword and headwear. Shah Abbas was one of the most famous Kings in the history of the Persian Empire.
Artworks with his portraits are very rare and very collectible.
