This is an unusually large inlaid Ottoman jade panel using this type of decoration. A closely related dagger hilt of similar work in the Hermitage is dated to the first half of the 17th century (Mikhail B. Piotrovsky and J. M. Rogers (eds.), Heaven on Earth, exhibition catalogue, Munich, London and New York, 2004, no.111, p.162). Fittings from one or more related daggers are in Florence (Giovanni Curatola, Eredità dell'Islam, exhibition catalogue, Venice, 1993, no.293, p.451, catalogued as Indian). A similar fitting to one of the fittings in Italy is in Copenhagen (Kjeld von Folsach, Art from the World of Islam in the David Collection, Copenhagen, 2001, no.381, p.241).
