Antique English Silver Inkstand, ‘dome Of The Rock’ Jerusalem, (قبة الصخرة‎, Qubbat As-sakhrah, כיפת הסלע), London, England – 1898

Product Description

A large silver inkstand modelled after the Dome of the Rock shrine (Qubbat As-Sakhrha).

The model consists of a central octagonal domed shrine with two smaller domed buildings in front and a minaret behind; each with mosaic patterns, arabesques and architectural detail.

The Dome of the Rock was built by Caliph Abd Al-Malik and enshrines the rock on which the prophet Mohammed began his night journey to heaven. Located on the Temple Mount in the old city of Jerusalem, it is the third most important shrine in the Islamic world.

The shrine is an octagonal structure with a large central dome. The exterior walls are divided by arches into seven bays, each containing mosaic tiles and arabesques.

In this model, the structural details have been carefully and faithfully copied: the walls are complete showing the arches, panels and shaped forms. When viewed closely, one can see that the mosaic details and patterns have been chased and pierced onto the silver model.

The shallow roof of the structure leads to a large dome, with further mosaic detail, which is surmounted by a crescent moon. A hidden compartment opens in the large dome for storing writing implements.The two domed structures in the front of the shrine also open to reveal compartments containing glass inkwells.  

The inkstand is fully marked for 1898 and the maker is Frederick Courthope.  Courthope took over the prominent firm of George Angell & Co in 1884, on the death of George Angell, and his mark is in similar style to Angell’s own mark.

European interest in the Dome of the Rock can be seen in a wooden model by Conrad Schick, a German architect and an immigrant to Palestine.
