The Arts of the Islamic World auctions will bring together a selection of unique objects and artefacts including: Metalwork, Glass, Ceramics, Manuscripts & Calligraphy,  as well as Arms and Armour.

The term Islamic Art characterizes art produced in the lands ruled by Muslims historically and part of a distinct culture and artistic tradition; Iran, Central Asia, Syria, Egypt, North Africa as well as Spain during the middle ages and later under the Nasrids.

Islamic Art is classified according to the dynasties under which the arts were produced, beginning with the Umayyad and Abbasid dynasties and concluding with powerful dynasties such as the Safavids, Ottomans, and Mughals as well as technique and style. In much of the arts produced; Persian culture remained a standard for artistic output, especially after the Mongol invasions ca. 1250 until this standard was challenged by the Ottomans in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Mughals in Northern India.

A wide range of regional styles evolved under these diverse influences yet we see a continued unifying element in the use of surface decoration, with four basic recurring motifs in Islamic ornament: calligraphy, geometric patterns, vegetal patterns, and figural representation.
