This Persian figure of a dove, sculpted from hammered steel and decorated with stylised feathers, cusped medallion outlined in gilt, with etched and inlaid silver and gold decoration, dates from last decade of the 19th century. The boom in artistic expression that occurred during the Qajar era was the fortunate side effect of the period of relative peace that accompanied the rule of Agha Muhammad Khan and his descendants. With his ascension, the bloody turmoil that had been devastating 18th century Persia came to a blissful end, thus, making it possible for the peacetime arts to again flourish. The Qajar dynasty was an Iranian royal dynasty of Turkic origin, specifically from the Qajar tribe, which ruled Persia (Iran) from 1785 to 1925. - (MS.1586)
