Description: 17th-18th century(?)

A lot of three inscribed Islamic rings.

First, a ring inscribed Pul [partly legible] in a provincial script. This ring follows the style and format of Ancient Javanese rings, and the inscription is perhaps meant to be ornamental.

Second, a ring inscribed al-abd Hajji in Naskh script (the servant Hajji). This ornamental gold ring with inscription is made of a dish bezel with punched circles framing the inner medallion with inscription. Similar punched circles form a decorative pattern along on the hoop with engraving.

Third, a ring inscribed ?Abdallah bin Yahya? in Thuluth script (?Abdallah son of Yahya?). The Thuluth script on this beautiful gold ring is a medieval style in calligraphy, meaning ?one third? and describes the type of writing, in which letters slope and are not complete to form an elegant and ornamental cursive script.
