Sultan Abdulhamid II, a master carpenter, produced a comparable imperial coat of arms located in the main reading room of the Rare Manuscripts Library of the Istanbul University. Founded by him, the library was originally located in the Yildiz Palace, and later moved to the Istanbul University Library at Atatürk’s order. It is possible that this work was produced in the Yildiz palace workshops under his guidance.
