Ottoman Period - The Holy Quran - 1892

Holy Quran in Ottoman Period 1310 / 1892

It was printed by the order of Sultan Abdulhamid from the Ottoman Printing House. On the last page, there is a blue colored control seal with wet monogram. The writing quality is very high.

The highlight of the book is its handmade rare leather binding. The leather skin is extremely rare and completely handmade. Please review the photos carefully.

Rulers and page heads are completely gilded. The gildings were made by the printing house. The ornament is not a lighting and is not handmade.

The decorations are yellow printing paints called "yaldız" in Turkish. Gilding is not gold. "Gilding" can also be translated into English as gilding, but it is not gold.
