Catalogue Note

inscriptions

Qur'an, Ayat al-Kursi 'The Throne Verse', surah al-Baqara (II).

The shape (without a drill hole at the top) indicates that this jade pendant would have been intended to be mounted, such as a similar example sold at Christie's, 10 April 2014, lot 130, also featuring the Ayat al-Kursi inscription and dated 1006 AH/1597 (just one year after this plaque).
