About this title


This magnificent book presents over four hundred pieces of ancient Iranian copper and bronze art from Elam, Luristan, Amlash, Kaluraz and Urartu, and from the Achaemenid, Parthian and Sassanian periods, dating from 3,000 BC to AD 700. All the pieces are from The Houshang Mahboubian Family Collection.

These splendid examples are described and illustrated in full colour and are accompanied by drawings, photographs of archealogical sites and maps.

A presentation of 400 largely unpublished pieces of ancient Iranian copper and bronze art of the Archaemenid, Parthian and Sassanid periods, dating from 3000 BC to AD 750, this beautifully illustrated volume will lead to a better understanding of the metalwork of Ancient Iran. It will be an essential reference work for professionals involved in the field of antiquities and the interested general reader alike.
