While the third displays artifacts from the palace workshops of the Mamluks, the Ottoman Dynasty, Timurid Empire, the Safavid Dynasty and the Qajar Dynasty.
Showcased among the unparalleled works are Qur’an manuscript pages from the 9th century Abbasid period, Mesopotamian decorations from Iran and Azerbaijan, Medieval bowls with calligraphic inscriptions, and a glass bowl decorated with gold leaf from 10th century Syria.
A rug from the mid 16th century decorated with the 99 names of Allah is especially attracting great attention.
