Artwork Details

Title: Hookah Cup

Location: Iran

Materials: gold, translucent and painted enamel

Dimensions: 6.5 x 8.7 cm

Accession Number: ISL 427

Other Notes:

The cup is painted with four vignettes of European ladies wearing the fashions of circa 1855, compositions certainly derived from imported prints. Such images became an increasingly popular subject for decoration on Qajar enamelwork during the second third of the 19th century.
