Gallery 108

Chicago collector Harvey B. Plotnick has assembled what is generally regarded as the finest private collection of early Islamic ceramics in the world. From these truly outstanding objects—much admired by specialists in the field of Islamic art and connoisseurs alike—a selection of approximately 100 treasures ranging in date from the early Abbasid caliphate in Iraq (9th–10th century) and the Mongol Ilkhanid dynasty in Iran (mid-13th–mid-14th century) to the Timurid dynasty in eastern central Asia (14th–15th century) is on view in the exhibition Perpetual Glory.
