The talk highlights The Courtauld’s world-class collection of thirteenth- to sixteenth-century Islamic metalwork from modern-day Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Turkey, including the Metalwork Bag, an exceptionally rare object made in Mosul (present-day northern Iraq) in around 1300–1330 that is the only surviving object of its kind.
