Sotheby’s Arts of the Islamic World & India sale will take place on October 27, featuring rare works from the Islamic world, most notably a leaf from the famous ‘Blue-Quran’ dated back to the 9th century.

The Ottoman Empire’s vast cultural traditions are examplified by rare specimens of Iznik pottery, a rare pair of wooden clogs, court carpets and an unusual Ottoman silk satin and metal-thread brocade panel. Most notably, copies of illuminated Qur’an and a divan dedicated to Sultan Mehmed the Conqueror will also feature in the sale.
