TXT 256

probably Istanbul


period of Mahmud II, 1808–1839

The curtain, or sitarah, is identified within the wreath at the top as being for bab al-manarah al-ra’isiyyah, that is the door to the main minaret at the Prophet’s mosque. Below this is the signature cartouche of Sultan Mahmud II, ‘written by the Warrior for the Faith (al-Ghazi) Mahmud ibn ‘Abd al-Hamid Khan’. This signature cartouche appears often on sitarahs presented by him to the Prophet’s mosque.
