This leaf, believed to be from a Koran, is illuminated throughout in dulling gold. Small red and gold wheel motifs separate verses from one another. The leaf's paper is somewhat coated, giving a matte appearance to all illuminated spots.
"Koran" (1901). Illuminated Manuscripts. 16.
Possible match to leaf #1 of Otto Ege's Original Leaves from Famous Books Collection.
