12TH CENTURY A.D. ISLAMIC SELJUK BRONZE EWER
Seljuk bronze ewer featuring lavish Arabesques and geometric patterns. Dimensions: 11 3/4 inches
tall (30 cm). The Seljuk period was undoubtedly one of the most intensively creative periods in the history of the Islamic
world. It displayed splendid achievements in every artistic field, with subtle differences from one region to the next. During
the Seljuks period metalwork was particularly widespread with extremely high levels of workmanship. Bronze was by far the
most widely used metal during the 11th and 12th centuries (brass being a later addition).
