A very similar pair of moulded and painted lacquered wooden doors, attributed to the Imami school, are in the Khalili Collection (Nasser D. Khalili, B.W. Robinson and Tim Stanley, Lacquer of the Islamic Lands, vol.2, London, 1997, no.320, pp.112 and 115-16). Another related pair were sold in these Rooms, 20 October 1992, lot 181. They came from the collection of H. Khan Monif (circa 1935) and were in fact used as the background for a Harper's Bazaar fashion shoot in September 1939. More recently a closely related pair were sold in these Rooms, 11 October 2005, lot 128.
