Rarest Museum Quality Antique Persian Qajar Islamic Papier Mache Cards C 1800’s For Sale
For sale is this beautiful set of 23 antique Persian Qajar cards. The cards date from the Qajar Era. I would estimate they date from late 1800's. Papier mache cards like this are extremely rare to find and extremely collectible.
The cards have been hand painted with portraits of Kings, Queens, Princes, Princesses and Lions.
It also comes complete with a long textile which holds all of the cards. I do not know how old this textile is.
It is very rare to find such a large set. I have seen single cards or very small sets, but I havent come across such a large set before. It is very unusual because as the years passed alot would be damaged or get lost. So it is amazing that this is such a large set.
Each card is approximately 6cm X 4cm.
This is the same as 2.4 inches X 1.6 inches
They are in very good condition, but do have some wear which is normal due to its age and nature of the item. I have taken close up photos of all the cards so please see all photos.
Take advantage and offer – Do NOT miss out on the opportunity to buy this fantastic large set of Genuine antique Persian Qajar Cards
