A pair of miniature size (3 1/2" by 4 3/8" inside the innermost mat) pages of the holy Qu'ran (Koran) of Islam, circa 19th century, and according to an auction house specialist, most likely Ottoman origin. (A handwritten modern note on the backing says Persia, circa 1800). Note the amazing detail and painstaking calligraphy and decoration. The pages are very nicely framed, with two mats and gold fillets. Framed the entire piece measures 19" by 15". Very elegant and understated yet impressive in its decorative power. Allow your imagination to wander, as it ponders the amount of time and effort devoted to the creation of this work, in a very foreign and exotic locale, two hundred or so years ago.
