|13th-14th century; 17th century; 12th-13th century.|
A lot of three Islamic rings.
First, a ring with rectangular bezel is made of cast gold. The central panel is inscribed “Husayn Uzdamir” in Naskh script, the name of the owner. The bezel is engraved around the center panel and borders with decorative scrolls. On the corners are ornamental pseudo-claws. The shoulders, shaped in palmettes, are also engraved with scrollwork, and a sprue on the band engraved with concentric circles.
Second, a pie-dish bezel ring with engraved foliage and scrolls. This ring is from Iran and evidences a time when European styles began to influence Islamic rings, such as here with the Renaissance style ring bezel.
Third, a seal ring with rectangular bezel made of sheet metal, on which is engraved a Kufic inscription with the name of the wearer, “Yusef Abdullah.” Such rings often included inscriptions wishing the owner prosperity, good fortune, happiness, and other good wishes for life.
