Up for sale is this stunning Persian manuscript. It depicts a dramatic lion hunt in a vibrant green field with a town in the background. This manuscript is especially beautiful for the maintenance of the bright and crisp colors.  The entire manuscript has been given a lovely gold gilt to accent the scene, which is difficult to capture in pictures. It has been expertly repaired (see photos), most likely at the turn of the 20th century. Our best guess is it's from 18th century. Originally Persian/Mughal/Indian miniatures originate from books/diaries and were often removed to be collected in albums. This particular one has been framed and is ready to hang on your wall!

The manuscript itself is 5 1/3” across and just under 4” high  

The frame is 7 2/3” across and 9 1/6” tall

 

Thank you for looking and good luck!
