raqam-e kamtarin 'ali ashraf 1167 'Drawn by most humble 'Ali Ashraf 1167'

'Ali Ashraf can likely be identified with the eighteenth-century painter, whose recorded works are all signed ze ba'd-e muhammad 'ali ashraf ast, on which various interpretations are given (Khalili et.al, Lacquer of the Islamic Lands, The Nasser D. Khalili Collection of Islamic Art, Part One, London, 1997, pp.72-4 and M. A. Karimzadeh Tabrizi, The Lives & Art of Old Painters of Iran, vol.I, London 1985, pp.368-73). This is his only recorded work signed in this manner.
