Ottoman Calligraphy Silver Pendant
I found this silver pendant a few years back in Istanbul. It highlights the beautiful art of decorative Ottoman style Arabic calligraphy. Calligraphy was an art greatly loved and respected by the Ottoman Turks and flourished particularly in the city of Istanbul. The silver pendant hangs on a hand-knotted necklace of silver and bronze beads.
This necklace is 23 inches long. The pendant is 2.5 inches long and 2 inches wide.
