Antique Qajar Tile – Falconer and Companion

Standard

IMG_2425

Despite having retired as an antique dealer Anthony Sargeant cannot resist ‘snapping up unconsidered trifles’. This small and damaged tile came with a great pile of  uninteresting bits of  brass and tourist ware and was uncatalogued in a provincial Shropshire auction. It is not enormously valuable but it is nevertheless very pleasing – despite being broken and reglued across the middle of the tile. The Qajar dynasty ruled in Iran in the 19th Century and this tile is typical of the period both in its palette and its form of relief figurative images.
