Glory and Prosperity

Glory and Prosperity: Metalwork of the Islamic World
CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS  •  The Arthur M. Sackler Museum at Harvard University  •  Ongoing
"Glory and prosperity" are usually the first in a series of good wishes inscribed on medieval Islamic metalwork - benefits that those who acquired such vessels presumably hoped would accrue to them through ownership and use.

This exhibition drawn mainly from Harvard's collection, showcases 74 objects dating from the 6th to the 19th century and originating in an area extending from Egypt to India.
