hilye-i serif by ahmed fehim tufengi

Another beautifully designed hilye-i serif by Ahmed Fehim Tufengi. Dated 1807, it is a rare example of its time. Ottoman era saw a lot of hilye-i serif artists partly due to the dubious interpretation of pictures and painting in Islam.

Dimensions: 14.5x1.5 cm.
Estimated value: $ 2,500
