Panel from a Minbar
Although the pattern of this group of panels appeared as early as the late twelfth century in Azerbaijan and is recorded as late as 1480–81, it enjoyed a particular vogue in Cairo between 1330 and 1350. A number of minbars in Cairo with this pattern and from this period bear very close resemblance to these pieces.
