China Chinese Hand Written Page From The Koran c18th Century. Most finely scripted in Sini Script that, is even scarcer than other Chinese examples, which were mostly scribed in Arabic scripts used in Afghanistan. Sura headings are in gold leaf. Size 12 x 16cm, ready to frame. Note: This was conducted mostly along the famous caravan routes from middle east through such cities of legend as Samarkand and onwards through the deserts of western China. Somewhere along these routes a Chinese scribe patiently devoted his time to pen this scarce Koranic manuscript.
