Description
The Seljuk dynasty was of a Sunni Muslim dynasty of western Turkic origins that gradually became hugely influenced by the Persian language, culture, literature, art, and/or identity and contributed to the Turko- Persian tradition in the medieval West and Central Asia, from 1037 to 1194 AD. The Seljuks established both the Seljuk Empire and the Sultanate of Rum, which at their territorial heights stretched from Anatolia through Iran and were targets of the First Crusade. Nowadays, the Seljuks are considered by scholars and historians as great patrons of Persian culture, art, literature, and language and are regarded as the ancestors of the present- day inhabitants of Azerbaijan, Turkey, and Turkmenistan. A cast bronze goblet of elegant and well- balanced form, of semi-circular body and flared foot. On the external and around the rim, Islamic inscription in Kufic characters. - (CB.2972)
