Description
This unusual decorated lamp must once have brought light to a palatial home in the Baghdad of the Arabian nights. Perhaps in the glow of this very lamp, Omar Khayam, the court astronomer and poet, composed the Rubaiyat. This gorgeous lamp is a splendid and rare example of metalwork from the golden age of Islam. - (FZ.147A)
