Pasadena, CA, USALive Auction
Description: Original authentic Mohammad Reza Pahlavi hand signed farman with Royal seal. After the reign of his father, Reza Shah the Great, in 1941 Mohammad Reza Pahlavi came to power and reigned until 1979. He was removed from power by a revolution, and is still one of the most loved Kings of Iran. Documents like this decree (farman) from his era were mostly burned or destroyed during the revolution, so they have become very rare. This amazing museum quality piece in extremely pristine, near perfect condition has been a treasured family heirloom in the collection of descendants of a member of the Royal Court. The \\\"Farman\\\" or \\\'Decree\\\" was written by the court calligrapher, stamped with the Royal Seal and then hand signed by the King himself. This beautiful piece should be mounted, framed, and hung on the wall as a timeless tribute to Iran\\\'s history.Size: 19.25\\\" x 13.75\\\"
Condition Report: Excellent
