The Nasser D. Khalili collection is the greatest collection of Islamic art in private hands. It contains the largest and most important holdings of Islamic lacquer in the world. The production of Islamic lacquerware, in which papier-mache and wooden penboxes, book-bindings, mirror cases and other objects were decorated in a technique of painting and varnishing, flourished in Iran, India and Turkey in the 17th-19th centuries. This volume covers every aspect of its geographical, historical and typological range and contains examples of the work of virtually every known lacquer artist.
