Islamic Calligraphy


I very apologize because this calligraphy is outside the SCA period, but I found it at the MKG (Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe) in Hamburg, Germany and thought you would appreciate if I share it with you (I also made some close-up pictures of this lovely work)

"Belehnungsurkunde mit Tughra"
Istanbul, Osmanen-Dynastie, datiert (dated) 1737
