Art and craft from Iran
From 1855, objects from Iran were collected to inspire manufacturers and designers in Britain. From metalwork, to ceramics, to textiles, these items represented good examples of workmanship, to be studied for the way they were made and decorated. National Museums Scotland continues to collect Iranian art and craft, focussing on technical and artistic innovation. We look for artworks or objects which reveal intellectual ideas and help understand the dynamics of social processes in these cultures.
