The Museums collection of Islamic art, which ranges in date from the seventh to the nineteenth century, reflects the great diversity and range of Islamic culture. Nearly 12,000 objects have been assembled in the Museum from as far westward as Spain and Morocco and as far eastward as Central Asia, India, and Southeast Asia.
“A beautiful textile fragment woven in Iran in the second half of the sixteenth century, once part of the central field of a huge carpet, is in the Museums collection. This magnificent piece exhibits the use of jufti (paired) knotting, characteristic of a small group of carpets and fragments attributed to the northeastern Iranian province of Khurasan. The carefully drawn flowers, incorporating serrated curling leaves, resemble those of the so-called saz style, which became popular in Iran and Turkey in the sixteenth century. The ornate pattern on our porcelain mugs is taken from this splendid textile. Includes 2 mugs. Porcelain, with decal application. Gift boxed. Dishwasher and microwave safe. 12 oz. each. 3 1/4”H each.”
